Anita Hearn Good on the train drivers. I wouldn't work Boxing Day and if I did I would want paying for it. We all have families. Funny the ones that don't agree with it are the ones that don't work Boxing Day anyway. Jealousy I think.
Mark Mason Gardner Greedy greedy, give nurses £350 extra for working Boxing Day, like I said greedy.
Andrew Gordon The capital being held to ransom by the unions still! The sooner the trains go driverless the better!
Tim Southcott Don't like Tube strikes, but if it keeps people in a job, that's good.
Vincent Farrugia If you want anybody to work on Boxing Day a premium payment should apply. They have families as well.
A three-year run of Boxing Day strikes on the Underground has come to an end after Tube train drivers accepted a £350 bonus. Members of the train drivers' union Aslef refused to work on December 26th in recent years.
The bonus was described by London Underground as a "genuine productivity deal". LU claimed the payments were "self-financing" and "cost-neutral" after drivers agreed to be more flexible about moving to a new line or depot.
London Underground drivers will be paid a bonus of £350 for working Boxing Day to avoid another year of strike action.
