LU poised for strike negotiations after second union backs walkouts

Transport Salaried Staffs Association votes for tube strikes

20 August 2010

London Underground (LU) is set for strike negotiations with its staff after members of a second union backed walkouts.

The Transport Salaried Staffs Association (TSSA) has revealed that its members voted three-to-one in favour of industrial action.

Last week, the Rail Maritime and Transport (RMT) union voted to go on strike in a dispute over planned staffing cuts in ticket offices across the network.

Gerry Doherty, head of TSSA, claimed the organisation is disillusioned with impending budget cuts made by the coalition government.

He said: "We want to serve notice on David Cameron that we are not going to sit idly by while he starts cutting jobs and services in London in the run-up to the Olympic Games."

Mr Doherty and RMT boss Bob Crow are expected to meet next Tuesday (August 24th) to discuss potential strike dates.

Reports claim industrial action is likely to be held on September 6th when MPs return after the summer break.
