The RMT union is to meet with London Underground management in a bid to end a strike that is causing travel chaos across the capital. Two-thirds of all services have been cancelled as a result of the walkout by tube maintenance workers and with the action set to continue until Friday, some people’s patience is wearing thin.
“It’s gonna now take four hours, three to four hours, for me to get home. So the strike has doubled the time that it would normally take,” one commuter complained. Unions have been seeking guarantees there will be no job losses or cuts in pensions arising from the collapse of Metronet, the underground maintenance which went into administration in July.
