EurostarCleaners for Eurostar trains have voted for a 24 hour strike on Bank Holiday Monday over a pay dispute. Workers are vexed that their hourly wage remains a low £6.37, and the RMT union is backing them, holding out for a bump up to £7.20. 140,000 passengers are expected to traverse the Channel Tunnel on the trains over the weekend, but Eurostar claim things will run smoothly; still, if you find a half-imbibed bottle of Chateauneuf du Pape and a quarter-scoffed croissant stuffed down the side of your seat, you'll know why.
