Threat Of Strikes During Olympics

29 February 2012, 08:21

Unions are threatening to take strike action during the Olympic Games as part of a campaign against Government cuts.

Unite general secretary Len McCluskey has called on people to engage in "civil disobedience" to defend public services.

Mr McCluskey says his union hasn't yet discussed "the specifics" of how workers could target the Olympics.

It follows an announcement by the RMT union that it's in dispute with Transport for London over Olympic pay.
