The RMT's Strikes will reflect negatively on London's image this Platinum Jubilee

Wednesday 18 May 2022

Richard Burge, Chief Executive of London Chamber of Commerce and Industry (LCCI), said:

“We are disappointed to see that the RMT has voted to strike once again, this time at one of the most poignant moments in the history of London and the UK. Tube strikes succeed in their intention to cause maximum disruption to London by actively discouraging tourists to visit the city to celebrate the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee. This inevitably has a negative effect on London businesses by reducing all-important footfall when businesses, particularly those in the hospitality sector, have already fought so hard to recover from the pandemic. We urge TfL and RMT to resolve the dispute and enable businesses, Londoners and tourists to continue with their plans to celebrate this milestone for the Queen and for London.”
