Night Tube strikes bring London to a halt: Partygoers face disruption again this weekend as RMT members fight over rosters

  • Rail, maritime and transport union members go out for eight hours on weekends
  • And there are similar stops planned for each weekend until the end of June
  • The union has accused the London Underground of blocking attempts to resolve the dispute










New strikes are due to take place on London’s Night Tube this weekend in a deadlocked row over new listings.

Rail, maritime and transport union members on the Central and Victoria lines will be out for eight hours on Friday and Saturday evenings, with similar stops scheduled every weekend until June.

The union accused the London Underground of blocking an attempt to make progress in resolving the dispute, during talks this week at the Acas Conciliation Service.

The RMT said it had offered to recommend the action be suspended if LU accepted a new set of “reasonable and realistic” proposals.

RMT General Secretary Mick Lynch said; “We are angry and frustrated that once again a proposal from our negotiators that would pave the way for the current action to be lifted has been rejected by Tube chiefs.

The RMT said it had offered to recommend the action be suspended if LU accepted a new set of “reasonable and realistic” proposals.

“Our proposal would address the central issue at the heart of this dispute – work-life balance.

“We are not backing down; the action continues and, with the government about to lift some Covid restrictions, it’s up to LU to start negotiating in earnest.

LU called the strikes unnecessary and advised passengers to check services before travelling.
