‘Unmanageable’ crowds prompt Eurostar staff to strike
Staff at Eurostar's London St Pancras terminal have hit out at the company for "Unmanageable" passenger numbers after they announced a 24-hour strike this week. Staff voted to strike because of what their union called "Appalling" working conditions. Eurostar said it plans "To run a normal service [on July 28] so that all passengers booked to travel with Eurostar will be able to do so." The company added it was "Managing the flows of passengers very carefully" and had brought in additional support "Over the busy summer period". More than 150 of Eurostar's 260 staff at St Pancras belong to the RMT, and 87 voted in favour of striking. The RMT said it was also balloting train managers about a strike, but given a 14-day notice period any industrial action would not coincide with the July 28 strike.
