TSSA votes for strikes in London tube dispute
The TSSA rail union has voted to strike in the dispute over the Mayor's plans to close all 260 Tube ticket offices and axe nearly 1,000 jobs.
Its members voted by a majority of 58.8% to join two 48-hour stoppages with the RMT next week between February 4 and 6 and the following week from February 11 to 13.
Announcing the result of the secret ballot which had a 52% turnout, union general secretary Manuel Cortes called on the Mayor to end his self imposed boycott of talking to rail union leaders.
Talks between LU management and the unions resume at ACAS tomorrow.
