Docklands Light Railway staff have voted to go on strike in a row over pay and industrial relations.

RMT Union members backed action by 9-1 after clashing with management over the use of agency staff, pay increases and disciplinary procedures.

Union general secretary Bob Crow said: "Our members have shown the level of anger across the railway in this overwhelming mandate for action.

"RMT will not tolerate the cavalier abuse of procedures, agreements and pay negotiations which has led to the complete breakdown of industrial relations on this vital section of the London transport operation."

Colleagues in RMT on the London Underground are set to stage two 48-hour walkouts on February 4 and 11 to protest over ticket office closures and any action on the DLR could be timed to coincide with these dates.
