RMT responds to London air pollution crisis

Responding to reports that Londoners are being advised to reduce physical activity on Fridays due to air pollution, RMT General Secretary Mick Lynch said:

“Car use returning to pre pandemic levels and pollution threatening people’s health confirms that decent greener public transport is essential for public safety.

“And it means now more than ever that the government needs to withdraw proposals to inflict cuts on the Capital’s public transport network.”
