– Binding arbitration the best solution, says London Assembly member
Responding to the announcement by the RMT that its members voted in favour of strike action on the tube in the run up to Christmas, Conservative London Assembly member Keith Prince said:
“Once again London is being cynically held to ransom by the unions at a time designed to inflict the highest possible damage. How much longer before we say enough is enough?
“The Mayor needs to prevent another tube strike Groundhog Day by backing plans for binding pendulum arbitration, forcing both sides to act as reasonably as possible during negotiations and preventing strikes.
“Londoners do not deserve to be used as pawns in petty industrial disputes. Mayor has a duty to intervene.”
