Jasper Hamill reports:

Cleaners working on the London Underground will resort to industrial action this week in protest against the introduction of a controversial biometric clocking-in system.

Starting at just after midnight on Thursday morning, “up to 300 cleaners” will join in the action by refusing to scan their fingerprints every time they clock on for work, said the union. Their decision will set the workers on a collision course with ISS, the Danish firm which employs them.

Read more on The Register.  It seems that the cleaners are citing human dignity concerns and not pointing to any data protection or data security concerns. But maybe if we give them time…..
