£8.5 million bonus bonanza for TfL top bosses

RMT on news of £8.5 million bonus bonanza for TfL top bosses

RMT General Secretary Mick Cash said:

“It is frankly appalling that at a time when there are £5 billion worth of cuts and over 1400 job losses being lined up by Transport for London that the very top brass are lining their pockets with huge pay and bonus packages at public expense.

“Londoners will be rightly appalled that while services are creaking under the strain of huge demand, and while staff are struggling to cope, the boardroom at TFL is awash with cash. RMT will take no lectures about the need for cuts, austerity and belt-tightening while this inequality is being allowed to let rip.”
