When are the tube strikes in June?

Unions are planning to go ahead with a 24-hour tube strike tomorrow, June 14.

The strike action would cause chaos for commuters if last-ditch talks between unions and Transport for London fail.

The Rail, Maritime and Transport (RMT) union said the Jubilee line would be shut down from Thursday morning.

Train drivers’ union Aslef said it would strike on the Jubilee line in a separate disagreement about driver safety.

Both unions had also announced walkouts on June 6, but these were called off following talks with TfL.

A spokesman for Transport for London said: “As far as we are aware the strike will go ahead on Thursday, but we are currently in talks with the unions.”

The planned strikes would affect the Jubilee line primarily, but the Bakerloo and Metropolitan lines will also be very busy.

Nigel Holness, TfL’s Director of Network Operations for London Underground, said: “We have adhered to our agreements and policies with the trade unions throughout this dispute.

“The action is completely unnecessary and will only cause disruption for customers, for which I apologise.”
