morning London underground drivers had no option but to call today's strike,
but that it was the fault of management.
they would go to arbitration', Mr Livingstone said. Arbitration would
probably produce a deal that added another 1/2 to 3/4 of a percent to their
pay increase, he said, whereas the strike will cost London at least£60m -
much more than pay costs.
Mr Livingstone said he will prevent strikes on the undergound by offering a
three or four year pay deal to London underground workers next year, when he
takes over responsibility for the tube.
