Tube Strike Threats

Only a matter of time

You know it's approaching Xmas and the New Year when the threat of tube strikes rear their ugly heads again. Apparently the Jubilee Line will be hit by 24 hour industrial action by Aslef on December 3rd and Christmas Eve, over a dispute with a depot manager. This is one of the network's busiest lines and is expected to cause a nightmare for around 450,000 people.

It's also possible that the District and Piccadilly Line drivers will walk out in separate rows over working conditions and the demotion of a fellow union member.

I'll keep you posted when the outcome of the ballots are announced later this week. Check out
BBC News for more on this.
