The Transport for London authorities have warned the commuters stating that they are about to face major travel disruption on some of the lines as the members of the Maritime and Transport (RMT) union and Transport Salaried Staffs Association (TSSA) have decided to call a strike to protest against job losses and the closure of ticketing offices from 6 pm on Sunday, 8th January. The commuters are about to face travel disruption till Tuesday morning.

 

 

Due to the closure of several ticketing offices and around 800 job cuts under the presiding Mayor of London, Boris Johnson, the staff members of the tube have decided to call the strike. The union members have also expressed their anger as the current Mayor of London Sadiq Khan has not taken the decision to reopen the ticketing offices.

 

 

Travellers are about to face chaotic situation in the Victoria and Waterloo & City lines. Also, the trains will give limited services on the Piccadilly line, between Hammersmith and Heathrow. Major tube stations like Waterloo, Euston, Victoria, Paddington, King’s Cross, London Bridge and Bank will also remain shut during the strike.

 

 

It has been found that the strikes can continue if the members of the unions and the London Underground fail to negotiate soon.
