Londoners, Brace Yourselves: Five Days of Tube Strikes are Planned

By Gerald Lynch on at

Did you have fun during the London tube strikes back in February? Good for you -- you may get to relive the experience for five more days, as London Underground workers plan five more days of industrial action across April and May.

Members of the RMT Union will walk out from 9pm on April 28th for 48 hours and then again for three days from May 5th unless the planned closure of 260 tube ticket offices is reviewed. 960 jobs are expected to be lost if the closures go ahead. Talks to prevent the planned strikes are ongoing -- we'll keep you posted whether or not they are prevented. [BBC]
