Zac Goldsmith calls for the tube to be classed as an 'important public service'

November 11, 2015 5:20 PM

On Monday Zac Goldsmith called for Transport for London to be classified as an 'important public service' so that 40 per cent of the entire workforce must vote 'yes' to strike action before a Tube strike is permitted the Evening Standard reports.

This would hold the Tube to the same standards that schools, hospitals and border security operate under.

It is also the recommendation that our chief executive, Jonathan Isaby made in The Spectator back in August of this year after the second tube strike in two months caused chaos estimated to have costed £50 million.

Better late than never.
