Tube Stike PR Stunt

Transport for London has been accused of misleading travellers over the impact of today’s strike by thousands of Tube workers, which has disrupted services for the fourth time in recent months.

The company said Tube services were running on nearly all lines this morning, adding that some stations may be closed. The Rail, Maritime and Transport Union said the walkout over job losses had the most impact yet, claiming that ghost trains were running as a PR stunt.

TFL said: “Tube services are running on nearly all lines this morning, despite a strike on London Underground called by the leaderships of the RMT and TSSA unions. The Northern line is running a service across the full length of the line, and the majority of the Victoria, Jubilee, District lines are also being served.”

Picket lines were mounted outside Tube stations across the capital, with commuters being warned that services will not return to normal until Tuesday.
