WALTHAM FOREST: Tube strike set for Monday

ANOTHER strike by London Underground workers looks set to take place next week.

Tube staff plan to walk out for 24 hours at 9pm on Monday (November 1).

It will be the third such strike in recent months. Previous last minute talks to avert the industrial action have failed.

Unions claim plans to reduce the opening hours of some ticket offices on the underground network will hit passenger safety and lead to at least 800 job losses.

There are also plans for a reduction of a further 800 posts on the network.

However Transport for London (TfL) say the unions are scaremongering and that there will be no compulsory redundancies.
