Games strikes face injunction

THE HOME Office is mounting a last-gasp attempt to block planned strike action by border workers during the Olympics, it emerged yesterday.

“Procedural errors” in the strike ballot could be used in support of an injunction to halt the industrial action due to start tomorrow.

The PCS union has said thousands of public sector workers, including those manning the immigration desks at Heathrow and other key routes into London, will walk out the day before the Olympics begin. The High Court will hear the injunction application today.
