UK: Train drivers threaten strike during Olympics

Drivers for East Midlands Trains said the strike would be from August 06 to 08.

London: Olympic transport chaos may have just gotten worse. Some 400 train workers are threatening to strike for three days in central England during the games.

Drivers for East Midlands Trains said today the strike would be from August 06 to 08. The games begin on July 27 and end on August 12.

The strikes could be highly disruptive to the games as Olympic soccer matches are being held across the United Kingdom, many workers are coming from outside of London and thousands of spectators are likely to use trains to get to venues around the capital.

Members of the ASLEF union said the proposed action is over pension reforms. The union is still in talks with management.
