A tube strike is planned on the Piccadilly line next week — which could result in 'little to no action' on the line, across four days.

RMT members are planning industrial action between the afternoon of Wednesday 26 September and the morning of Saturday 29 September.

TfL has advised Piccadilly line passengers to complete journeys by 1pm on Wednesday (26 September). Services will resume at around 3.30pm on Friday (28 September), but will then begin to wind down again from 10pm. Full service will resume at around 7.30am on Saturday between Heathrow and Cockfosters and around 8.30am from Uxbridge to Acton Town.

All other lines will run as normal. However, interchange stations along the Piccadilly line — Finsbury Park, Green Park, Hammersmith, and King’s Cross St. Pancras stations in particular — are expected to be busier than normal.

Talks to resolve the strike action are planned, and the past shows that such talks are often successful. Fingers crossed for this one.

The RMT claims its members are striking, due to "the abject failure by tube bosses to deliver on a raft of issues including an end to the abuse of policies and procedures, delays and cancellations to planned training, failure to release reps for important meetings and dragging their feet over implementation on key health and safety ‎issues."
