London Underground staff opt to strike

from the London Underground have voted for industrial action over pay dispute.

Rail Maritime and Transport union says its members voted by around 9-1 in
favour of strike action.

dispute centres on a pay argument with the unions claiming that the London
Underground has gone back on a promise to close the gap between drivers of
passenger and engineering trains.

London Underground is accusing RMT and Aslef – which represent around 3,000 LU
workers – of pushing for unrealistic pay deals.
