Uh oh, Piccadilly line drivers are planning a tube strike

Isabelle Aron

UPDATE: The RMT has confirmed plans for three 24-hour walkouts from 9pm on March 23, 12pm on April 19 and 12pm on April 21. 

Since we heard the news that two unions have accepted a deal for the night tube, we'd hoped that the whole tube strike mania situation might die down a bit. But apparently we thought wrong. The RMT, which is one of the unions that has accepted a deal for the nocturnal service, has just announced plans for a tube strike – although this time it's not about the night tube.

The RMT has accused the London Underground of 'bullying, harassment and intimidation', and now Piccadilly line tube drivers have voted to strike. The union says the dispute is related to problems with the 'ageing' fleet of Piccadilly line trains, which are the oldest trains on the London Underground. The RMT hasn't confirmed a date yet, so let's hope it's one of those tube strikes that never actually materialises.
