Topic: Tube workers to strike

London Underground workers plan to cripple the network next week with a 48 hour strike.

The walkout starting next Tuesday evening has been called because of a long running dispute to close ticket offices.

London Underground say few tickets are bought at offices now, arguing that staff would be better used by being stationed on concourses.

Members of the Rail, Maritime and Transport union have been instructed not to book on for any shifts between 9pm on October 14 and 8.59pm on October 16.

The walkout threatens travel disruption in the capital and coincides with strikes by council workers and civil servants across the country in separate disputes over pay and job cuts.
