Of the DLR potential strike RMT leader Bob Crow, in full bullish mode, said: "Management at Serco Docklands continue to show total disregard for the idea of proper negotiation and consultation with this trade union on a number of issues and have also victimised and dismissed two of our colleagues.
"Our members have shown in this massive vote for action (162 for and 36 against) that they will not be bullied and treated with contempt. The industrial relations situation at Serco Docklands cannot be tolerated any longer and our members have now voted overwhelmingly in favour of strike action and industrial action short of a strike.
"This ballot shows management we mean business and that we will not accept their disgraceful attitude towards their staff, and it is now up to the company to respond positively to our demands for a solution that addresses all of the issues at the heart of this dispute."
At time of writing there's nothing on the RMT's website about when the DLR strike might take place , although it does list the issues at the heart of the dispute.
However, managing director of Serco Docklands, David Stretch hopes they might be able to avert strike action through talks and said: "We are extremely disappointed that the RMT is calling for strike action on the DLR. Constructive talks have already resolved a number of issues raised by the union and there are more meetings planned.
"Our aim is to resolve the current issues before any action is taken which disrupts our passengers."
