Tube strikes are detrimental to London's recovery

1 June 2022

Richard Burge, CEO of the London Chamber of Commerce and Industry, said:

“Once again we are extremely disappointed that the RMT has called for a mass walkout by TfL workers on Monday 6 June, in such close proximity to the Queen's Jubilee Weekend when London will be full of visitors. The last two years hit London disproportionately hard and the capital is desperately trying to claw back some sense of normality after a tumultuous two years. This strike now puts TfL in a position of having to recommend that Londoners WFH. Ultimately, this will only harm London’s economy and it is time for TfL to sort out their dispute with the RMT so we can get back to building prosperity and showing the world that London is open business.”
