London Flash: Tube Strike Coming
The Metronet Rail strike that was due to begin this past Sunday (April 15, 2007) at 6 p.m. was, oh so thankfully, suspended. In its absence, the Tube is running as normal this week, with the usual delays and suspensions.
For fans of transportation strikes and slow downs, there’s hope on the horizon. According to the BBC, the National Union of Rail, Maritime and Transport Workers (RMT) promises an “indefinite overtime ban” on the part of rail workers, beginning on April 22. The workers who plan to strike are maintenance workers, not drivers or station staff. More information at TFL and BBC.
