    Tube strike: Jubilee weekend walkout at two stations
    London Underground workers based at two Tube stations are to strike for one day over the Jubilee bank holiday weekend in a row over bullying.
    Members of the Rail, Maritime and Transport union at Euston and Green Park will walk out on Friday 3 June.
    General secretary Mick Lynch said those based at the two stations had "suffered years of sustained bullying and intimidation by a manager".

    So potential disruption for thousands on a historic weekend because there is a 'bully' and TFL HR policies are not sorting it.
    How can two whole stations walk out based on one person????
    Its one of those where hundreds will go on strike cos the sun is shining in solidarity with something they read in the union newsletter.

    I fully support my brothers and sisters in any strike action as long as it doesn't inconvenience me personally...which it won't because I have no intention of celebrating the jubilee or indeed any event celebrating the royal family.

    In fact I will be cursing the Queens name because she has stolen a billable day from me.

            My FWB dictates what I do when I'm inside too .... she won't sign my timesheets off though as she says the smallest billable time period is 15 minutes. Maybe I should go on strike too ... that would teach her a lesson
            I am what I drink, and I'm a bitter man

              I think she could probably amuse herself for that 10 seconds...

                I seem to remember most of the Tube strikes (and there seems to have been a lot of them) were timed perfectly to cause most disruption, which is normally a big event. The threat of one during the 2012 Olympics springs to mind and there are others.

                  They didn't go on strike and most Londoners also chose to stay of the tube in 2012 as I remember.

                  it was very weird going to the events I had tickets for and not being squashed as the only people on the tube were also going to Olympic events where not all the tickets had been sold thanks to sponorship.....

                    Yeah that's right but it was more the point they target high profile events to get their point which fits in with the 'blackmail' theme. Maybe a good tactic but doesn't paint them in a good light with the public at all.
