The RMT union has issued notice of a ballot among its members.

Strike negotiations could be prompted by the announcement of a ballot by the RMT union.

The organisation, which represents those working as train drivers for London Underground (LU), revealed that it had served notice to all its members for a vote to be taken on whether to initiate strike action.

This comes after activists Eamon Lynch and Arwyn Thomas were sacked from their roles by LU in a move RMT claimed was prompted by their union activities.

Commenting on the ballot, general secretary of the organisation Bob Crown claimed that it is a clear part of policymaker's "cuts assault" to target union representatives.

"We are balloting all of our drivers to send out the clearest signal that workers who stand up for tube safety will get the full support of RMT members," he said.

Earlier in the month, Mr Crow claimed that strike negotiations with LU had been unsuccessful in achieving a compromise.
