Second "Let Them Eat Cake" walkout causes disruption at TfL

13 June 2014

Travel centres at stations across the capital were disrupted today in the "let them eat cake" dispute at TfL.

Over 1500 staff staged a second 24-hour walkout in a pay and pensions row which excludes the top 300 bosses at Boris Johnson's transport body who all earn over £100,000.

Junior and middle managers are facing cuts to their pensions and a pay freeze while their boss, Sir Peter Hendy, took home £489,000 last year.

Leading a picket line outside TfL's headquarters in Victoria Street, Westminister, TSSA leader Manuel Cortes, accused Boris Johnson and his Golden Circle of bosses of acting like the Bourbons.
