Transport for London (TfL) managers and supervisors have voted to go on strike in a dispute over pay and pensions.
A strike action may take place within the next four weeks.
The Transport Salaried Staffs Association (TSSA) said that 47% staff turned up to participate in the vote. More than 1,000 staff backed the action 3-1.
TfL HR Director Tricia Riley said: “As with arrangements at any modern organisation, our proposed changes will ensure that our non-operational staff, who provide valuable management and support functions, are fairly paid based on their performance and their pay relative to the external jobs market.”
“The only way in which these disputes get resolved is by talking and not by threatening strikes. We have been engaging with the trade unions on these issues since November and we have already invited the TSSA to continue discussions with us in a number of areas.”
“We note that 60% of those balloted either did not vote or voted against strike action.”
