Uh oh, unions have announced plans for three 24-hour tube strikes

Isabelle Aron

Brace yourselves, London, because the tube strikes are back in town. Remember when we said last week that there might be more tube strikes coming? Well, now there definitely are. The RMT union has announced that it will be staging three 24-hour walkouts over the next few weeks, with drivers striking from 6.30pm on January 26, February 15 and February 17 and other workers from 9pm on the same days. Unite and Aslef have also confirmed that they will be striking on the same days – Unite will stop work at 6.30pm and Aslef at 9.15pm. The strikes are over a dispute on pay and working conditions for the (as yet non-existent) Night Tube service – an issue that has been ongoing since the last tube strikes in summer. Let's just hope the arctic blast that's supposedly heading our way holds off, because we don't really fancy walking to work in the snow.
