RMT Reaction to Mayor Boris Johnson's Comments that a Quarter of a Million Pounds a Year From His Second Job is "Chickenfeed"

Bob Crow, RMT General Secretary, said:

“Transport workers in London will look at Boris Johnson’s claim that £250,000 a year for moonlighting in a second job is “chickenfeed” and wonder just what planet he’s living on.

“Our members working as cleaners on London Underground, who have been denied the London Living Wage that was promised them by Boris Johnson, will be especially angry when they are out there doing dirty jobs for little more than six pounds an hour.

“We look at the Mayor’s comments, the pay and benefits of his army of advisers and the 231 TfL managers earning over £100,000 a year and we have to ask how any of them have got the nerve to attack transport staff who are fighting to protect their jobs and their pay and conditions.”
