Planned Tube strikes ‘risks further damage to our customers confidence in TfL’ and ‘financial recovery’

Members of the Rail, Maritime and Transport union (RMT) will walk out on 19 August which will affect the London Underground and the Overground for a 24 hour strike.

However officials have warned the planned strike will also increase “the risk to our financial recovery.”

Andy Lord, Transport for London’s chief operating officer, said: “It is extremely frustrating and hugely disappointing that the RMT has announced further strike action on London Underground on August 19 despite no changes to pensions being tabled and no-one losing their job as a result of the changes to station staffing.

“The RMT has clearly coordinated action to cause maximum impact to customers by also announcing strike action on London Overground on the same day, along with strike action on the national rail network on August 18 and 20.

“We urge the RMT to call off this action which risks further damage to our customers’ confidence in TfL, whilst also increasing the risk to our financial recovery.”
