One of the main London Underground Unions - TSSA has voted in favour of industrial action.

They said "Strike ballot - a resounding YES!
TSSA members at London Underground have delivered a firm response to LUL's attempts to cut jobs and terms and conditions. Talks are continuing to attempt to achieve our objectives and members will be informed of the outcome of those talks.

Thank you to all our members who voted so convincingly to support their union colleagues. Remember - together we are stronger, if you have a colleague who isn’t a union member ask them to join TSSA

81% of the members voted for strike action. It will be interesting to see if the other major union the RMT go the same way.
