Why are Tube workers going on strike?

The strikes for RMT members are in for the 600 cut jobs being made by Transport for London (TfL) and pensions. 

As RMT general secretary Mick Lynch said: “This week of action will shut down the London Underground and show just how important the work of our members is.

“Plans by Transport for London (TfL) to cut 600 jobs and attack our members’ pensions are simply unacceptable.

“We are aware that the 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.”

Meanwhile, Aslef members will be striking to help "protect our pensions, working conditions, and agreements", according to Aslef's full-time organiser on London Underground Finn Brennan.

What Tube lines will be affected by strikes?

Currently, the affected tubes have not yet been confirmed, however, information will be updated once confirmed.
