Home Train Operating Companies Strike on Tube tomorrow (Friday) appears imminent

Strike on Tube tomorrow (Friday) appears imminent

With talks having so far proved unsuccessful, RMT has confirmed that strikes will go ahead on the Tube tomorrow (Friday).

The argument centres around changes to staffing and subsequent rosters for the Night Tube.

The RMT statement suggests themselves and London Underground have reached no agreement in any talks to resolve the matter. TfL said that conciliation service ACAS had been brought in to help settle the matter, but that it felt RMT had provided no suitable alternative plan.

RMT says all train operator and instructor operators working on night-tube lines (Central, Jubilee, Northern, Piccadilly & Victoria) have been instructed not to book on for any duty commencing between 04:30 on tomorrow and 04:29 Saturday.

At this stage, Transport for London is warning of severe disruption. As reported, both believe the strike to be unnecessary for their own reasons.

If strikes continue, the next full 24 hours of action will be from 04:30 on 18 December to 04:29 19 December.

The six night strikes are :

  • between 20:30 on 27 November and 04:29 on 28 November
  • between 20:30 on 3 December and 04:29 on 4 December
  • between 20:30 on 4 December and 04:29 on 5 December
  • between 20:30 on 10 December and 04:29 on 11 December
  • between 20:30 on 11 December and 04:29 on 12 December
  • between 20:30 on 17 December and 04:29 on 18 December
