No Pride In Being Right

Submitted by Tubeworker on Thu, 09/22/2016 - 18:26

Tube staff, our unions, passengers' groups, and countless others will take no pride in being proved right when it comes to incidents like the one which took place at Canning Town, where a woman was trapped by a train and there wasn't sufficient staff to respond.

We all said all along that cutting staffing levels to the bare minimum, and leaving control rooms unstaffed, would be dangerous. There's no joy in being able to say "I told you so" to management when a passenger has been hurt.

LU needs to stop and reverse its cuts programme before anyone else gets hurt.
