LONDON (Reuters) - The Rail, Maritime & Transport workers union (RMT) said that over 100 electricians working for London Underground contractor EDF Energy Powerlink would strike next week over a pay dispute.

“EDF RMT members have been instructed not to book on for any duty between 19.59 GMT on December 22 and 07.59 GMT on December 24 nor for any duty between 19.59 GMT on December 26 and 07.59 GMT on December 27,” the union said in a statement on Friday.

The RMT said that members of the Unite union have also been balloted and will be taking action at the same time.

EDF supplies power to the entire London Underground network.
