Commenting on news that bus drivers in London have voted to take strike action over extra payments during the London Olympics.
Co-Chairman of the Conservative Party Baroness Warsi said:
Ed Miliband’s friend Len McCluskey [Unite General Secretary] is clearly hell-bent on ruining the Olympics.
Unite are Labour's biggest donor. Ed Miliband should put the national interest first and get them to call off this damaging and irresponsible strike
This, says the Conservative party, follows comments made by Len McCluskey, General Secretary of Unite, in February when he called for “civil disobedience” during the Games in order to bring his “grievances to the attention of as many people as possible”.
