TaxPayers’ Alliance responds to London Underground strikes

For immediate release


Responding to an upcoming week of London Underground strikes conducted by RMT, Darwin Friend, research director of the TaxPayers' Alliance, said:

“Londoners will be seething at a week of severe commuter disruption.

“With TfL overseeing an already bloated pay-bill, hard-pressed taxpayers are bound to wonder how unions can justify this strike.

"Transport bosses must stand up to unions and deliver a transit system that works, not one that constantly walks out.”
