Customs staff and workers on London Underground are tomorrow due to strike

25 July 2012

First border staff call strike. Now Tube drivers.

With the eyes of the world on Britain, there was mounting anger last night over cynical attempts by union leaders to bring chaos to our borders and transport networks.

As thousands of athletes and officials pour into the country on the eve of the Olympics, immigration and customs staff are tomorrow due to walk out at Heathrow Airport – a move which the Government could take court action to stop.

And from Friday, workers on London Underground, some of whom have already secured Olympic-linked bonuses of up to £1,000, will start a work-to-rule regime.

Similarly, staff on key suburban rail routes to Games sites in London and Weymouth will also begin disruptive action.
