Three day Tube Strike planned

We've not had that many threats of strike action this year (possibly because the summer's been so bad, there's no point in extra days off). However we now have the possiblity of some industrial action on the Tube next month.

Members of the Unite and Rail, Maritime and Transport (RMT) unions will hold 72-hour strikes on 3 and 10 September. A 48-hour strike by the Transport Salaried Staffs' Association (TSSA) will begin on 4 September.

Tube Strikes on the Way

The planned action is over job losses faced by Metronet staff. TfL reckon that they are addressing all the issues.

They said "there is no reason whatsoever why the lives of millions of Londoners should be disrupted by industrial action. Threatening Londoners with two three-day strikes on the tube when no action is being taken to disadvantage any employees is wrong." So we'll have to wait and see.
