United Kingdom -Tube workers voted yes to strike -January 10, 2014

The RMT union has announced that on 4 and 5 February, and 11 and 12 February two 48-hour strikes on the Tube will take place. London Underground workers voted to go on strike in protest at plans to close ticket offices and axe 750 jobs. Some 77% of Rail Maritime and Transport (RMT) union members voting in the ballot backed strike action. The union also announced action short of strike, including telling its members not to sell tickets at certain times.
