Virgin West Coast booking office staff balloted for industrial action

Issue No. 2192

Booking office staff operating the new ticket issuing system on Virgin West Coast are balloting for industrial action.

The ballot comes after Virgin Trains used anti-union laws to stop an RMT strike last year. The company is refusing to make a new technology payment to staff for the introduction of new ticket machines in offices. The ballot closes next Tuesday.
