Boris: 'Ban Key Public Sector Workers From Striking'

tube strike2.jpg As the threat of yet more tube strikes looms, Boris Johnson waded into the fray again with union leaders over industrial action, calling for a change in law so that a higher number of union members would be required to pass a vote for strikes. The mayor has been criticised for not meeting with the union leaders concerned as per his pre-election manifesto, yet Boris's stance last year was that he wouldn't meet with them until the threat of strike action was removed. So something of a Mexican stand-off. Unsurprisingly, Ken Livingstone has condemned the cuts which caused the latest round of strikes, but then as a budding mayoral candidate for 2012, he would.
