Time for Government action over strikesMay 4, 2011
Baroness Jo Valentine, Chief Executive of London First, said:
“The RMT leadership seems determined to disrupt London and its economy on wholly spurious grounds – regardless of the reputational damage being done to the capital. With only 29% of drivers balloted voting for this walkout, now is the time for Government to step in and change the law to stop unnecessary strike action”
