Tory fakery over tube strikes

15 April 2013

Responding to the GLA Tory poll on banning strikes, Manuel Cortes, leader of the TSSA, condemned the hypocrisy of Boris Johnson, who has not spoken to the rail unions once since he was elected.

"This is electioneering hypocrisy by the Tories on a grand scale. Boris was elected five years ago promising talks with the unions on agreeing a no strike agreement.
"Since then, all we have had from City Hall is silence, not even one phone call from the Mayor who uses his £250,000 a year column in the Daily Telegraph to attack us at regular intervals.
"This is a broken record which the Tories trot at at every GLA election. It is time they moved on."
