Strike negotiations may be needed to halt further tube walk outs

There may be more disruption caused to tube passengers in the new year as a result of strike action.

30 November 2010

Further strike negotiations may be required in the new year after union officials representing tube staff warned industrial action could escalate at the start of 2010.

As the long-running battle between London Underground (LU) and the Rail Maritime and Transport (RMT) union and Transport Salaried Staffs' Association rumbles on, it was suggested that two or three-day strikes would be considered.

Further disruption was caused to thousands of tube passengers yesterday (November 29th) as a result of 24 hours of industrial action, but the situation is currently showing few signs of being resolved.

General secretary of the RMT Bob Crow stated that people are being misled by Transport for London over the impact the latest wave of walk outs had on the underground system.

However, LU managing director Mike Brown said the decision taken by the unions to refuse a discussion of plans is "staggering" and will be viewed by Londoners as "an attempt to hold our city to ransom".

Mr Brown recently commented that the strikes will not achieve anything and should be called off immediately.
