Tube Drivers

Tube drivers, and especially their trade union representatives really get me pissed off.

They have now managed to get an above-average inflation pay-rise to take their pay to £50k a year.


There are 3,200 of them, so a total annual salary of £160million.

And yet they keep going on strike and bringing much transport misery to the capital.  This deal has no ban on strikes.

Not to mention 9 weeks holiday, free staff taxi's and free transport on the network for them and one family member.

OK, they have to work in the dark all day, but I used to work in an office with no windows and was only paid £16k then.

Surely a driver-less system could be implemented for the amount that would be saved annually on train-drivers?  It works in other metro systems.

Disgusting.
