RMT announce industrial action ahead of General Secretary vote

The RMT has announced a fresh wave of industrial action ahead of a decision today on who will replace the late Bob Crow as the union's General Secretary.

The action comes as part of a long running row over ticket office closures. The RMT is accusing London Underground of being "hell-bent" on carrying out a programme of ticket office closures and job cuts despite months of talks.

Plans for an overtime ban and other forms of industrial action were suspended earlier this month, but members will now ban overtime from Wednesday until further notice.
