Jowell: No-one wants disruption of Olympics

Shadow Olympics minister Tessa Jowell says strikes during the Olympics would not help Unite get sympathy for their cause:

"No one in our country looking forward to the Olympics, no athlete preparing, and none of our thousands of potential visitors, would understand or sympathise with any disruption to the Olympic games.

"If this is a negotiation it should take place in private. Unions and employers should get together and sort it out without threats or disruption to Britain's Olympics."
