South West Trains Staff Take Industrial Action

Workers at one of the country's biggest train companies are to take industrial action during the Olympics in a row over a Games bonus payment.

Up to 1,000 members of the RMT union at South West Trains will work to rule with a ban on overtime throughout the Games. 

South West Trains insists it has already agreed a wage deal covering the Games period.

Union members working on the London bike hire scheme will strike for 48 hours from Friday morning in a similar row.
