The 1,500 Tube drivers were already balloted and on Monday RMT leader Crow announced the he'll be balloting all 5,000 RMT members about "LUL's attempts to impose, without negotiation, changes in attendance, disciplinary and harassment procedures.
"After months of trying to stop these attacks, it has become clear that the only path left open to us is to ballot our entire Tube membership for industrial action, and we have given London Underground notice to that effect"
Results of the larger ballot will be announced on February 23.
Of course London Underground have responded by saying that Bob Crow is being extreme by calling for strike action over this: "If any employee or union has a genuine grievance ... the only way to resolve the matter is through discussions, using procedures agreed by unions and management. It is regrettable that once again the RMT is misleading its members and ignoring agreed procedures." said Mike Brown. Check out Reuters for the full story.
Poor, poor new London Transport boss Peter Hendry (who actually sounds like a bit of a laugh - see his recent interview with The Guardian"I'll look poncey," he says, when asked to put his hat on for the photo. ), I don't envy him at all.
