Commenting on the tube strike due to start at 6.30pm this (Wednesday) evening Labour’s London Assembly Transport Spokesperson Val Shawcross AM said:
“The night tube will be a great innovation for London it but it will have an enormous impact on thousands of staff who deserve a fair deal. By announcing the night tube without any prior consultation or negotiation with the staff he expected to run it Boris Johnson has caused many of the problems we face today.
“Whilst its welcome that TfL has finally shown a willingness to give some ground in the negotiations, this strike is going to be deeply disruptive for millions of Londoners. The Mayor should be doing all he can to resolve the situation he has helped to create.”
