Train drivers express desire for strike action

Train
drivers on the Heathrow Express are to stage three days of strikes next month
in a dispute over union recognition.

Drivers
on the service between Paddington station and Heathrow airport, which carries
14,000 passengers a day, will stage the walkouts on 3, 10 and 12 October.

Train
drivers union Aslef said it would not accept having the same representation
rights as a staff association.

Seventy-six
train drivers voted with 54 per cent voting in favour of the strike.
