Staff Presence

In the wake of the horrific terrorist attack in Manchester, station staff have been asked to wear our hi-vis vests permanently while on duty. LU says this is to "reassure" passengers about "staff presence".

Might it not be more reassuring to actually address the issue of how many staff there are, rather than merely changing our outfits to make us more visible?

Since the 7/7 bombings in London, LU has cut thousands of jobs, massively reducing the frontline staffing level. These cuts should be reversed! We can't reassure our passengers about staff presence if there aren't enough staff present.
