London Underground Ticket Office And Station Staff

EDM number 1169 in 2009-10, proposed by John McDonnell on 23/03/2010.
Categorised under the topics of Employment and Railways.

That this House regards the proposals by London Mayor Boris Johnson to shed up to 800 ticket office and gateline jobs on London Underground as a hugely retrograde step in terms of public service; believes that this move will fail to achieve the company's stated objective of improved customer service, and undermines long-term safety operational procedures for stations, trains and signals in order to run trains without available station staff; condemns the actions of the Mayor of London in breaking an election campaign promise that he would protect ticket offices by ensuring that they are always properly staffed; is deeply concerned that if these cuts were to take effect, London Underground would be incapable of responding to a major security alert or function efficiently during the 2012 Olympics; and calls on the Government to urge the Mayor to meet with the trade unions to re-affirm reasonable and safe staffing levels right across the London Underground network.

This motion has been signed by a total of 24 MPs.
