Piecemeal privatisation

Submitted by Tubeworker on Sat, 05/24/2014 - 06:32

LU used to get revenue inspectors to go out onto trains asking to see tickets in order to compile statistics on LU revenue lost due to unpaid fares.

Now LU has contracted out this element of a revenue inspector's duties to a private company. Its workers wear a hi vi emblazoned with 'in partnership with Tfl' on it.

This is a slippery slope which our unions must fight.
