Thousands of London Underground station staff are to strike next month over the long running bitter dispute over conditions, jobs and safety concerns.
Members of the Rail, Maritime and Transport union (RMT) will strike between 4 and 6 October which will shut down Tube services.
RMT general secretary Mick Lynch said, “Station staff have had enough of having their livelihoods threatened by job losses and attacks on their terms and conditions.
“Station staff have a vital role to play assisting vulnerable passengers to access the network safely and ensuring that the Tube is a safe environment for passengers.
“These job cuts and attacks on conditions are going to lead to more unstaffed stations, temporary closures and rising passenger anger.
“Transport for London has had its budgets slashed but the savings made by these station staff cuts will be negatable and will lead to shortages that are unacceptable.
“This strike action will lead to the Tube being shut down and we call on Mayor Sadiq Khan to meet us urgently to discuss this matter.”
