MOSCOW (Sputnik) — The TSSA, the London Underground and the Rail, Maritime and Transport (RMT) union has been on talks for four days. The TSSA and the RMT argue that job cuts would lead to the excessive workloads for the remaining Tube staff, jeopardizing safety of passengers.
The strike is expected to start at 18:00 GMT on Sunday, causing mass closures of Tube stations. According to the Transport for London website, almost all stations in the city center would be closed, Victoria and Waterloo & City lines would not be operating as well, services on other lines in outer London would be limited. Besides, there would be no Tube services from the stations connected to the railway stations, in particular, from King's Cross, Waterloo, Paddington, Euston. There also would be no line services running to the Heathrow airport terminals four and five.
