5.2m hours wasted in the strike

Strikes on the underground last week lead to 5.2m wasted hours, a survey will say today. The data, from Citrix Online, says that London&rsquo;s workers spent an extra 1.3m hours &ndash; or 188,000 working days &ndash; getting into work last Wednesday, the first day of the strike.<br /><br />A third of London-based employees were disrupted by the strik, with 5 per cent working from home, 2 per cent taking the day off and 1 per cent off sick.
