YouGov : Londoners oppose the Night Tube strikes

01/21/2022 | 06:33am
Even Labour voters in the capital tend to oppose the RMT strike

RMT (Rail, Maritime and Transport) Union workers on the London Underground began a strike earlier this month over planned changes to the "Night Tube" rota - which would see all drivers needing to take on four-weekend shifts on the Night Tube each year. The strike, affecting the Central and Victoria lines after 8:30 pm on Fridays and Saturdays, is planned to continue for six months.

Bosses at the RMT Union say that they are striking for "progressive and family-friendly working practices" and say the changes are being forced on workers.

However, a new YouGov survey of Londoners shows that half of those in the capital oppose the strike action (50%) - including three in ten (30%) "strongly opposed". Around a quarter of Londoners (28%) support the industrial action.

Even among Labour voters in the capital, the strike is divisive, with 44% opposed versus 35% who support the tube drivers. This is compared to 72% of Conservative voters in London who oppose the strike.
