New Tube strike dates announced for August

11 August 2015

london underground tube There's another strike due on the London London Underground, where the Tube will be closed down through industrial action.

And it is coming much sooner than you think.

Tube workers will stage two strikes over the continuing dispute over pay deals and the night Tube. The RMT union have said that 24-hour walkouts will kick-off at 21:00 BST on Tuesday 25th August and at 21:00 on Thursday 27th August.

That's going to be tantamount to three days of disruption for commuters. There's going to be some fraught patience from some London dwellers, but of course, the whole point of strikes is to be an inconvenience, in a bid to make the powers that be listen. One of the major sticking points is how bosses aren't prepared to meet unions face-to-face about all this.

Again, here's the Bitterwallet guide to getting around London during a Tube strike.

    Just sack the drivers and replace them with people who'd be grateful for the work. The RMT will whine like hell but just make the leaders personally responsible for costs arising from any court cases and they'll soon scuttle off back to the pub.

    Agree 100% Neil
