Jeremy Corbyn MP Calls For Withdrawal of Imposition Of Night Tube

Labour MP and leadership candidate Jermy Corbyn has submitted an Early Day Motion (EDM) calling on "the Mayor to withdraw the imposition of night working on tube workers and instead seek agreement with their trade unions on proper and safe staffing levels and working arrangements."

The EDM - which are used to draw attention to campaigns or publicise an MP's views - details the affect shift work can have on physical and mental health, and highlights concern that Night Tube is being rushed in at a time when hundreds of jobs face the axe.
