Sadiq Khan’s ‘Zero Strikes’ election pledge has always been considered laughable, but the disruption caused by these upcoming strikes will be no joke.

His recklessly tight budget will most likely lead to many more strikes over his term.

An independent review has supported the previous Mayor’s decision to close ticket offices and improve staff visibility, making these strikes entirely pointless.
