When does the Tube strike?

Union RMT confirmed this morning that a pipe strike is planned for Friday 7 January.

Its members operating Central and Victoria lines will stop working on Friday from 8:30pm to 8am on Saturday.

They plan to do the same on Saturday night, from 8:30 p.m. to 8 a.m. Sunday, and continue the strikes until June 19.

According to the union, the new roster for the Night Tube is being applied to drivers they are not satisfied with.

Negotiations were held between the union and TfL but the row remained deadlocked.

In December, RMT general secretary Mick Lynch said: “If the London Underground and the Mayor (Sadiq Khan) think that the struggle for progressive and family-friendly working methods will be over, they need to think again.

“Our members have been re-elected and have given a firm mandate to act, and that is the failure of London Underground and Sadiq Khan to address grievances at the heart of the dispute leaving us with no choice but to endorse a program of action.”

On Thursday, January 6, Sadiq Khan hit back and called on RMT bosses to stop taking industrial action, saying: “This ongoing strike action by RMT has caused widespread disruption. for many Londoners and will cause further devastation to the city’s hard-hit cultural, retail and hospitality industries at a critical time if it continues through the summer.

“The night pipeline plays an important role in revitalizing our capital and helps improve safety for women and girls when they return home at night.”
