The RMT trade union has confirmed that it has commenced a ballot among staff working for London Underground.

Power control room employees are set to vote on possible strike action and other measures short of this.

The ballot marks the latest development in an ongoing dispute between the union and Underground bosses over pay grade progression.

Commenting on the move, general secretary of the RMT Bob Crow expressed his hopes that a "strong" vote in favour of industrial action could prompt further strike negotiations.

"We have tried to negotiate a solution to our members concerns over power room grade progression but the company have failed to come up with a serious package that meets past promises," he said.

This comes after BBC News reported that members of train drivers' union Asleft would face a similar ballot over strike action earlier in the week.
