Strike negotiations 'needed' for London Underground dispute

10 January 2011

Strike negotiations might prove useful in the prevention of potential action on the day of the royal wedding.

Union officials from Aslef have warned London Underground drivers could hold strikes on April 29th – the day Prince William marries Kate Middleton - in a row over wages.

Drivers went on strike on Boxing Day in a dispute about bank holiday pay, which remains unresolved.

London Underground managing director Mike Brown suggested the only way to resolve the issue is by getting round the table for constructive talks.

"I urge the Aslef leadership to end pointless strike threats and work with us to resolve this without any disruption to London," he said.

Strike negotiations may also prove useful as Great Western Ambulance Service staff in Bristol, Wiltshire, Gloucestershire and areas of Somerset have voted in favour of industrial action.

A ballot was held by Unison following a row over pay and conditions between staff and the NHS Trust.
