Large Crossrail bonuses are unacceptable

As Transport for London reported the large bonus payments it made to senior Crossrail managers in the last financial year, Caroline Pidgeon responded:

“These generous payments for TfL’s senior staff continue to be out of step with the harsh economic reality facing its passengers.

“Any form of bonus payments for senior staff working on Crossrail are simply unacceptable. When a project is above budget and set to open almost three years late bonus payments for its senior staff should have long been banished.”

Supporting the vital work of Sistah Space

Caroline has written to the mayor to advocate for Sistah SPACE Against Domestic Abuse, a Hackney-based domestic violence charity focussed on supporting and helping women and girls of African heritage across London. They have been evicted from their offices, and Hackney Council has asked them to move to a wholly unsuitable premises.

Caroline has stressed to the mayor that it's essential for Sistah Space to remain in the premises they are in, or find alternative, appropriate accommodation so that they can carry on their essential work.
