There has been lots of serious discussions in London regarding the implementation of the ‘night tube’ come this September. Nevertheless in the days and months leading up to the big launch of the 2015 weekend night tubes on Saturday and Sunday nights…the country is held to ransom by TFL workers going on strike due to bad negation offers handed down by the executives running TFL.
Now we have problems galore as none of the unions can come to an agreement with TFL and the £2000 bonus for night tube workers who take the shifts will only go to 2000 workers out of 20,000 workers. This has been branded a ‘divide and conquer’ technique by the unions who agreed to the strike earlier in July.
Every time the tube is down we get to endure many hours of problems with lots of traffic and accidents occurring on the road due to people stressing out. How would you like if every bus driving past your bus stop was to be completely full to the neck with passengers? This is not good for the economy considering the tube is the heart of London and it would be safe to say that London would be in oblivion without the tube.
The mayor of London and TFL need to figure out a deal that will benefit the Unions and the TFL workers otherwise everyone will have a lot more than strikes to worry about come this September.
