United Kingdom -Agency workers London tube to go on strike -February 02, 2013

Agency workers on the London Underground, organised in the RMT rail union, have announced they will go on strike to protect their jobs. Until recently, the agency workers were paid less than their directly hired colleagues. As they organised in the RMT and started defending their rights, the workers were granted equal pay. Shortly after, however, London Underground abruptly ended its contract with the agency, placing the agency workers’ jobs in jeopardy. RMT is demanding the agency workers are incorporated as direct hires.
