Unions cost members pay and Londoners support

Commenting on the impact of the Tube strikes

Baroness Jo Valentine, Chief Executive of London First, said:

“It’s brilliant how the vast majority of people have got to work despite the efforts of the strikers. London has proved its resilience once again. So the unions are costing their members another day’s pay and the support of Londoners.”
