Wasn't that nice of London Underground Ltd to send us all a letter telling us how much the company pays us? And what a coincidence that it just so happened to arrive just as the pay talks are kicking off in earnest.
Perhaps it would have been simpler to send us all a postcard saying "Don't you get lots of lovely pay and perks? Why on earth would you want any more? Don't be greedy now ..."
Unfortunately for LUL, pretty much every Tube worker has seen right through its attempt at manipulation. So the next time we get a bulletin saying that the company can't afford to give us much of a pay rise, we might suggest in return that it stops wasting money sending us letters teling us what we already know.
