Tube work­ers vote to strike

Midweek Sport - - NEWS -

WORK­ERS on one of Lon­don Un­der­ground’s busiest lines have voted to strike in a dis­pute over in­dus­trial re­la­tions.

Mem­bers of the Rail, Mar­itime and Trans­port union on the Tube’s Pic­cadilly Line, which serves Heathrow air­port, backed walk­outs by 70 per cent.

The union said there had been a “com­pre­hen­sive breakdown” of in­dus­trial re­la­tions.

Its gen­eral sec­re­tary Mick Cash said: “The abuse of pro­ce­dures and agree­ments by man­age­ment on the Pic­cadilly Line is rife and amounts to the de­vel­op­ment of a cam­paign of bul­ly­ing, ha­rass­ment and in­tim­i­da­tion that the union will not al­low to con­tinue.”

Lon­don Un­der­ground’s op­er­a­tion di­rec­tor Pat Hans­berry said: “This vote for strike ac­tion is com­pletely un­nec­es­sary.”
