London Underground staff set dates of next industrial action

Well, they're obivously not going to make any friends with the half of the country obsessed with rugby at the moment. The first of the go slows which were announced today is on the 8th of December, the date when the victorious England Rugby Team will be having a celebration parade through London.

I suppose if half of London's streets are going to closed down while the procession is on, perhaps Central London travel will be a bit of a mare in any case on that day.

The next in the 9th December. The
industrial action where staff voted with a 55% majority to take place is over concerns over safety on the system following two derailments in October.

For the latest on all of this, check out Google News .
