RMT sets DLR strike dates

TRANSPORT union RMT yesterday announced 48 hours of strike action on the Docklands Light Railway between 03.59 hours next Thursday 20 January 2011 and 03.58 hours on Saturday 22 January 2011 in a dispute with Serco Docklands. RMT blamed a “breakdown” in industrial relations for the move. The planned strike comes after the government warned it is considering a tightening of the trade union laws.
