With respect to the families of those who died in the Croydon tram disaster, these TfL directors should not be using the crash as a reason for not taking their bonuses.
The overcrowding and the cleanliness of our public transport system would be a far better reason.
Transport for London bosses propose to ‘reject’ their bonuses after Croydon tram crash Two Transport for London (TfL) bosses will propose to not receive their annual bonus for this financial year because of the Croydon tram crash. For the year previously, Mr Daniels received performance pay of £70,831 on top of his £270,264 salary, the draft TfL annual report said. Mr Brown received £139,600 in the same period on top of his £373,051 salary. Chief executive Tim O’Toole of FirstGroup, which operates the tram network under the subsidiary Tram Operations Limited, also did not take his bonus this year because of the derailment which claimed seven people’s lives. According to FirstGroup’s annual report, it would not be “appropriate” for Mr O’Toole to be paid the £723,415 bonus while investigations into the cause of the disaster are ongoing.
