Tube Electrician Strike - Any Affect?

There's nothing on the RMT's website to indicate that the electrician's strike on London Underground has been called off. The
industrial action was due to begin at 19:59 last night, November 16 and end at 07:59 on Tuesday November 18th.

However, luckily for us, it's looking as though EDF Energy Powerlink's spokesman was right. He said: "In the event action is taken, arrangements are in place to ensure that the London Underground can continue to operate normally and that the safety of passengers and staff is maintained at all times."

Transport for London also said the strike would not affect services on London Underground and that it expected the network to run as normal. Although Bob Crow from the RMT union was far more optimistic in predicting doom and gloom and said the strike had "the potential to shut down large sections of the Tube network".

Your best bet is to check the Tube's website before travelling and listen out for any last minute station closures or disruption.
