Did you know there is a Tube strike happening today?


Transport union members are due to walk out for eight days from 8pm tonight in a row over pensions and working conditions.

However, London Underground said there would be no impact on Tube services, despite claims as the strike involves power workers on the Tube.

Richard Jones, London Underground’s Head of Command and Control, said: “Due to detailed planning there will be no visible impact on the network should the strike action go ahead.”

RMT union and Unite claimed there would be some disruption, though the unions said there was still time to call off the strike.

TfL said in a statement: “We have resolved a number of issues and have proposed a further reward package for staff in return for changes to the way our people work which will give us greater flexibility and staff availability when the network needs it most.”

It added that it was “disappointing” that Unite and RMT had rejected TfL’s proposals.
