RMT announce further action after strike negotiations
Individuals will be taking to the picket line in defence of one of their colleagues, who they feel has been unfairly sacked.
Strike negotiations are needed as the RMT - the National Union of Rail, Maritime and Transport Workers - has revealed the latest round of dates for industrial action.
The reason that members of the union are taking to the picket line is in support of their colleague Arwyn Thomas, who they believe has been victimised due to his sacking by London Underground.
Because Mr Thomas has not been reinstated, eight separate days of strikes have been announced from June 19th - July 1st.
RMT general secretary Bob Crow noted: "The massive vote for action by tube drivers in this dispute shows that they are well aware of the consequences of allowing our activists and safety reps to be picked off."
He continued by saying that Mr Thomas - a member of RMT for over 29 years - has to be given his job back.
Union bargaining may be requited if the two sides are to come to a resolution over the issue.
