Tube workers vote to strike
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.”
