A second major ballot on industrial action has collapsed in tatters. The RMT left the courts this afternoon with their strike plans turned to dust. Though Unite are engaged in a dispute at BA, their initial strike plans fell apart because of the sloppy nature of the ballot. Hopefully, the RMT members will take the opportunity to reject strike demands in the follow on ballot the union will hold for rail signalmen. 54% voted for action last time so the desire for an industrial strike is not overwhelming. A rail strike is needed like a hole in the head.
