Industrial Action for the Olympics?

Tube and London Bus Unions are both threatening industrial action during the Olympics which could bring chaos to the Capital.

On the day the Olympic flame was lit in ancient Greece the hopes of an Olympic pay deal between London Underground and the RMT union for its staff seem to be fading fast.

Talks over the £850 one off payment at conciliation service ACAS between LU and the RMT have ended without agreement.

The Union claim a deal was agreed and close but was reneged on by transport bosses who have concluded a similiar deal with the Tube drivers union ASLEF. Now they're promising a ballot for industrial action "very soon" short of a strike during the Games.
