Strikes loom on Tube

TfL is bracing for possible strike action as the Christmas period approaches.

The union RMT has said it plans action for two 24-hour periods and six nights across November and December as part of a dispute over Night Tube rosters.

Currently, the dispute remains unresolved.


Should the strikes go ahead, TfL says it will “severely disrupt” services on the Central, Jubilee, Northern, Piccadilly and Victoria lines on Friday 26 November and Saturday 18 December. TfL said it would result in a significantly reduced service on these lines all day with little or no service in place. It added it will be likely to cause much busier services on Tube lines not affected by the strike (Bakerloo, Circle, District, Hammersmith & City and Metropolitan) as customers seek alternative routes.

TfL has called the action “unnecessary”; the RMT has likewise said the action its members are currently set to take is “avoidable” because TfL, it says, had axed dedicated Night Tube staff. It calls the new rosters an imposition of “unacceptable” shifts.

Night strike dates for Central and Victoria are:

  • between 20:30 on 27/11/21 and 04:29 on 28/11/21
  • between 20:30 on 3/12/21 and 04:29 on 4/12/21
  • between 20:30 on 4/12/21 and 04:29 on 5/12/21
  • between 20:30 on 10/12/21 and 04:29 on 11/12/21
  • between 20:30 on 11/12/21 and 04:29 on 12/12/21
  • between 20:30 on 17/12/21 and 04:29 on 18/12/21

Full 24-hour strike dates on night-tube lines (Central, Jubilee, Northern, Piccadilly & Victoria) are:

  • 04:30 on 26/11/21 and 04:29 27/11/21
  • 04:30 on 18/12/21 to 04:29 19/12/21
