RMT confirms weekend Tube strikes until summer

The RMT has confirmed today that more strikes on the Night Tube are set to go ahead.

The union said they will run every weekend from tomorrow (Friday, 7 January) through to the summer.

The strike action comes following a dispute over work rosters on the Tube.


RMT members on the Central and Victoria lines will take strike action from 20.30 until 08.00 the next day each Friday, and the same on Saturdays through to Sunday morning.

The union has said that if dissatisfied with response from the London Underground the strike could broaden action.

RMT General Secretary Mick Lynch said: “As the New Year gets under way our battle for workplace justice for tube staff steps up a gear with a new phase of action running from tomorrow through to the summer.

“It’s the failure of LU and Sadiq Khan to address the grievances at the heart of the dispute that leaves us no option but to confirm the programme of action goes ahead as planned.”

It said it had put forward proposals for working hours solutions to no avail, adding it remained available for further talks.
