Tube Strike Threat For Tour De France

tube strikeA dispute between London Underground (LU) and members of the Unite union could cause disruption during the Tour de France when it arrives in London on 7 July.

The union claim talks have broken down over 40 technicians based at the power control room in Blackfriars Road where they provide the power for the underground network. The dispute is around workers being tupe’d to other organisations before coming back to LU, but with different conditions.

Unite say workers are now threatening to strike from 8pm on Tuesday 1 July to 8pm on Wednesday 9 July. The RMT and TSSA unions are said to be considering similar industrial action.

A previous tube strike planned for the May bank holiday was suspended pending further talks. We took a look at the reasons behind it.
