Tube strikes to go ahead after talks fail to make progress

5 January 2024

RMT Press Office:

London Underground workers will take strike action during the next week, over pay, grading structures and travel facilities.

The action will begin tonight at 6pm when maintenance train workers at Ruislip Depot will walk out for 24 hours.
Control staff will strike on Sunday for 24 hours and from Monday to Wednesday nearly 10,000 RMT members will strike across the Tube.
Despite direct talks with TfL, tube bosses failed to come up with a proposal that was acceptable to the London Underground workforce.
An RMT spokesperson said: "TfL has failed to avert this strike by not offering a deal that was acceptable to our members on London Underground.
"We do not take strike action lightly but we are determined to get a negotiated settlement on pay, travel facilities and a grading structure that means our members will not lose out."
Strike action by London Underground workers will be as follows:
- Friday 5 th January  18:00 hours to  Saturday 6th January  17:59 hours
- Sunday 7th Jan 00:01 to Monday 8th January 23:59 hours – LU Control Centre, Track Access Control and Power Control
- Monday 8th January 00:01 hours to  Wednesday 10th January 23:59 hours – including Station Staff and Train Operators among others

- Tuesday 9th January 00:01 hours to Thursday 11th January 23:59 hours – Service Controllers, Signallers and Line Information
