London Underground drivers are planning a strike in the run-up to Christmas, which will cause travel chaos for commuters.
Everything you need to know about the tube strikes is right here.
The London tube strikes will go ahead as planned, causing disruptions on five major lines, despite several attempts to avert them, according to the Rail, Maritime and Transport Workers union.
The strike was sparked by disagreements over pay and hours for Night Tube drivers, who were rehired after being suspended during the pandemic in March 2020.
“No one should underestimate the anger this issue has generated among drivers,” said Mick Lynch, general secretary of the RMT.
All of this could have been avoided if Tube management had not cut dedicated Night Tube staff and perfectly workable arrangements to reduce staffing numbers and costs.”
Here are all of the pertinent details about the London Tube strike, including which lines are affected and how long the strike will last.
From 4.30 a.m. on Friday, November 26, until 4.29 a.m. the following morning, employees will go on strike for 24 hours, refusing to work.
The following day, Saturday, November 27, the same thing will be done, but this time from 8.30 p.m. until the next morning.
Every weekend in December, from this weekend until Sunday, December 19, there are also plans for overnight walk-outs.
The following is a complete list of strike times and lines that have been impacted:
The 24-hour strikes on November 26 and December 18 will affect the Victoria, Central, Jubilee, Northern, and Piccadilly lines, among others.
Although the Bakerloo, Circle, District, Metropolitan, and Hammersmith and City lines are expected to operate normally on these days, the walk-outs may cause them to be busier than usual.
Buses and Thameslink services in central London are also expected to be busier.
Protests are unlikely to affect DLR, London Overground, TfL Rail, or National Rail services.
The RMT has called for the strike’s first two days to coincide with the reopening of the Night Tube, claiming that the 80,000-strong union is striking over “unacceptable and intolerable demands.”
When the Night Tube was re-introduced, TfL stated that drivers on the Night Tube’s lines would be expected to work four weekends per year.
Despite the fact that these rosters provide drivers with more flexibility and job security, the union claims that working hours and pay are still inadequate.
