The National Union of Rail, Maritime and Transport Workers or RMT has announced further strike action on London's Underground service later this month.

This comes amid a long-running dispute between the union and employers over pensions, job cuts and working conditions.

The week of rolling strike action will take place in July with RMT general secretary Mick Lynch saying: "This week of action will shut down the London Underground and show just how important the work of our members is.

"Plans by TfL to cut 600 jobs and attack our member's pensions are simply unacceptable.

"We are aware that Mayor of London Sadiq Khan has had the TfL budget cut.

"However, he needs to align himself with our union and his London Underground staff in pushing back against the Tory government, exposing their damaging agenda to a key part of London transport infrastructure."

When will London Underground workers go on strike this July?

London Underground workers who are members of the RMT union will take part in week-long strike action at the end of July.

Workers at alternating tube stations will strike from Sunday, July 23 through to Friday, July 28.

The action is said to affect all aspects of the tube, including stations and maintenance, leading to staffing issues and lower safety standards.

This comes after claims that the London Underground was looking to axe some 600 jobs.
