The London Underground could face major disruption later this month after tube workers announced a week-long strike.
The RMT announced it would launch a week-long strike between July 23-28 over a long-running dispute over jobs, pensions and conditions.
The union said there will be no strike on Monday, July 24, while workers of different grades will take action on each of the other days.
RMT General Secretary Mick Lynch said the action would “close the tube” and “show how important these workers were”.
Lynch said: “Transport for London (TfL)’s plans to cut 600 jobs and attack our members’ pensions are simply unacceptable.
“We are aware that the Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan, has had the budget cut from TfL.
“However, he needs to align himself with our union and his London Underground staff to push back against the Tory government, exposing their damaging agenda to a key part of London’s transport infrastructure.”
