Covid Congestion

Crowded train

While Covid cases rise again, the Tube is getting more congested, not less, with many of us faced with overcrowded trains on our journeys to and from work.

The days at the start of lockdown when stations looked like ghost towns are well behind us now.

The 10pm pub and restaurant curfew has seen thousands of people pour out of venues at the same time, into stations and onto trains. And with furlough reducing and many employers not paying full sick or isolation pay, workers are taking themselves to work rather than stay at home in safety because they can not afford not to.

Government policy is to blame for much of this. But Tube management also have a duty to take action to protect us. If we can not travel to and from work safely, then we want management to provide staff taxis, or at the very least not discipline us if we arrive at work late because we had to let some trains go by before being able to board one safely.
