A New Tube Strike Has Been Announced For July

***UPDATE: This strike has been called off and a normal service will run on the line.***

A tube strike is due to take place on the Piccadilly line this week.

The RMT union said its drivers will be on strike from 9pm on Wednesday 11 July until 1am on Saturday 14 July. The strike is the result of a dispute over working conditions.

The RMT's general secretary Mick Cash said:

There have been repeated problems on the Piccadilly line going back a number of years which have led to dispute after dispute and the failure of LU management to get a grip has tipped the situation over the edge yet again. That is why we have had no option but to put on these strike dates.

Nigel Holness, TfL's Director of Network Operations for London Underground, said:

I urge the RMT Leadership to work with us constructively on the local issues they have raised, so that Londoners aren't subjected to disruption.

However, as things stand, subjected to disruption is exactly what many Londoners will be.
