Tube strike

London Underground drivers in the Aslef union have voted by a 97.3% majority for industrial action to protect terms and conditions.

With Tube funding, heavily reliant on fares, having collapsed due to the pandemic, workers expect bosses to attack conditions such as pensions as part of a commitment to the Tory government, which has given TfL a series of bailouts, to return to being “self-financing” by 2023.

Although no specific cuts have been announced, two TfL reports have explicitly called for pension reform.

RMT, TSSA, and Unite, the other three unions organising on London Underground, have yet to launch ballots.
