Interesting and Some heated comments under the article too!

Not sure industrial action will help anyone at TC though. May just make a struggling company struggle more when people choose other companies to travel with if they strike at Christmas ruining people s holidays or trying to get home.

General public will turn on them not book with them and end up creating even more redundancies by doing so.

Tough calls for staff to make at TC.

Being as over half didn't even bother to vote first time round, it will be interesting to see how many takers they have for a strike. Good way to lose even more jobs - not that Unite will see it that way!

Perhaps it's time to bring back arbitration? Shock! horror! the neo-liberals out there will be building the barricades!

Why can't workers just be greatful for the crumbs they are given?
