Tube Workers Vote to Stike

Articles, LondonUnlockedEditor

The Transport Salaried Staffs' Association voted 4 to 1 to strike late last night.

The RMT also plans to ballot its members in the near future over the issue of the use of agency staff, with the result likely to follow that of the TSSA.

The BBC carries a full report on the vote here.

Though dates for the strike action have not yet been confirmed, this vote raises the spectre of there being tube strikes over the 1st May - when the Mayoral election is to take place.
