Emma Best AM comment on Tube strike
Responding to the RMT's walkout on the London Underground today, Emma Best, Conservative London Assembly Member, commented: "Today's strike is an unwarranted attack on London's commuters and visitors by a deluded trade union. Disrupting Londoners’ lives and wrecking the return of London's much-needed Night Tube will achieve nothing.
"Transport for London is only asking drivers to do four shifts a year on the Night Tube to provide Londoners with a safe route home at night. Other trade unions have already agreed to the change. It's reckless for the RMT union to strike over this reasonable request.
"The Mayor personally assured me in the London Assembly that he would resolve this dispute so the Night Tube could reopen tomorrow. He must stand up for Londoners, face down the RMT union, and ensure the Night Tube reopens in full as soon as possible."
