Londoners are being warned of ‘severe disruption’ as Tube drivers stage second round of strikes

The Night Tube will suffer “severe disruption” this weekend as drivers are to stage their second round of strikes.

Members of the Rail, Maritime and Transport (RMT) union will walk out on Friday and Saturday evenings on the Central and Victoria lines for eight hours.

The RMT union claim that Transport for London (TfL) have “ripped up” an agreement where Tube drivers are allowed to choose between working on th night time services.

Nick Dent, London Underground’s director of customer operations, said, “We’re urging Night Tube customers to check before they travel this weekend ahead of more disruptive RMT strike action on the Central and Victoria lines.

“While I’m pleased we managed to run a safe and regular service on the Night Tube last weekend despite strike action, there is still a chance of severe disruption this weekend and up to Christmas.

“We’ve been in talks with the RMT for months to try and avoid this needless strike action.

“I apologise to customers for the disruption they may face and urge the RMT to continue talks with us, rather than threatening London with further strikes at a crucial time for its recovery.”
