Ready for Action?

uniteLogo%5B1%5D.gifOf the industrial variety that is. The District and Bakerloo lines may be a teensy bit affected today by two different disputes involving RMT members and something about sacked colleagues. Yawn.

Meanwhile, on the buses, Unite says that its members are to strike on the 29th August and again on 12th September for 24 and 48 hours respectively. They claim that operators have different rates of pay and that bus drivers should be paid equally. Oh, as long as it’s at the highest rate of course. Although striking for a pay decrease would be far more effective for publicity, wethinks.

Thence to the airport, where wannabe Bank Holiday travellers got a reprieve today: the threatened baggage handlers strike at Gatwick and Stansted has been called off, although there may still be some local disruption at the latter.
