Lambeth library workers have voted overwhelmingly to strike to save ten libraries under threat from the south London Labour council’s cuts.
Some 89 percent of Unison union members voted for the action. They are resisting a plan to close five libraries and turn some into gyms. This is part of a £90 million cuts package.
Workers expect an announcement about redundancies this week.
The strike vote follows an unofficial walkout in November. Councillors are also under pressure from a community campaign.
