Commenting on the announcement by the RMT union that they are to stage three 24 hour strikes of on London's Tube network, Liberal Democrat mayoral candidate Caroline Pidgeon said:
"The Mayor and TfL have messed up the negotiations on the introduction of the night Tube by giving an artificial deadline, allowing the Unions to hold them to ransom. But given that date passed last September, it is now quite clear that the unions are now playing games rather than working all out to secure an agreement. Both sides need to come together, sit round the table and hammer out a full and fair deal. London and Londoners need, and expect, nothing less."
