LONDON UNDERGROUND TICKET OFFICE AND STATION STAFF
EDM #1169
Tabled 23 March 2010
2009-10 Session
That this House regards the proposals by London Mayor Boris Johnson to shed up to 800 ticket office and gateline jobs on London Underground as a hugely retrograde step in terms of public service; believes that this move will fail to achieve the company's stated objective of improved customer service, and undermines long-term safety operational procedures for stations, trains and signals in order to run trains without available station staff; condemns the actions of the Mayor of London in breaking an election campaign promise that he would protect ticket offices by ensuring that they are always properly staffed; is deeply concerned that if these cuts were to take effect, London Underground would be incapable of responding to a major security alert or function efficiently during the 2012 Olympics; and calls on the Government to urge the Mayor to meet with the trade unions to re-affirm reasonable and safe staffing levels right across the London Underground network.
