Remember when we said there might be a pre-Christmas tube strike? Well, it looks like it's happening. The Rail, Maritime and Transport (RMT) Union has confirmed that tube drivers on the Piccadilly and Hammersmith and City lines are planning a 24-hour walkout.
The strike is planned from 9.30pm on December 6 until 9.29pm on December 7. According to the RMT, the walkout is because of two separate disputes over 'a breakdown in industrial relations, breaches of procedures and bullying and harassment of staff'. Let's hope it all gets resolved and the strike gets called off. But it wouldn't hurt to have an alternative route to work up your sleeve just in case.
