As I blogged last Friday the RMT at it's weekly meeting with Ken Livingstone and Transport for London were none too happy about safety levels on the tube, and some of their drivers had been refusing to take out trains.
Metro report that yesterday, that the RMT "would consider balloting its 11,000 members if talks with London Underground fail to reach agreement today"
"The union wants the introduction of guards on trains, more station workers and better emergency training and equipment including breathing apparatus for rail staff. They also accuse Transport for London of wanting to reduce staff numbers and weaken fire safety regulations."
"RMT officials descibed talks on Friday as 'disappointing' ansd said they would support any members who delt too at risk to work."
See The Evening Standard for more on this. I imagine this is one strike, that if it does happen, most people will be backing. But how long could they go on strike for something like this? Would it be one day industrial action to bring it more the public eye? A series of one day strikes or something longer?
