Uh oh, there could be more strikes over the night tube

Isabelle Aron

We're patiently waiting for the day when we can bring you good news about the night tube, but today is not that day. There was a glimmer of hope earlier this week when members of the RMT union accepted a deal over the night tube, but it looks like the other unions aren't exactly on board. The Transport Salaried Staffs Association (TSSA) has rejected the offer and plans to ballot its members about potential strike action. Confusingly, while the RMT union has accepted the deal, there are 1,000 Tube Lines maintenance staff who are represented by the RMT, but have rejected the deal and are now voting on whether to strike. So, to sum up: we aren't even close to a new night tube launch date and there might be more tube strikes a-coming. Well, we said it wasn't good news.

In less depressing tube news, someone's taken London's worst tube adverts and made them way better.
