Planned London Underground Strikes – February 2014

The RMT and TSSA union leaderships have instructed their members to carry out four days of strike action in February.

Two 48-hour strikes have been called at London Underground which will affect services from:

  • Around 9.30pm on Tuesday 4 February until the morning of Friday 7 February; and
  • Around 9.30pm on Tuesday 11 February until the morning of Friday 14 February

Travel Advice

Should the RMT and TSSA strike action go ahead,  as many stations that can, will be kept open and run as many trains as possible.  However, there will be disruption to journeys on Wednesday and Thursday.  Customers are advised to complete their journeys as early as possible on Tuesday evening.

A 24-hour strike has also been called by the leadership of the ASLEF union at London Tramlink. The dispute is between the operator of Tramlink, First and the ASLEF union over the dismissal of two drivers.  Should the strike go ahead, it is likely to cause disruption to Tramlink services on Wednesday 5 February.

DLR, London Overground and other rail services will be operating as normal, as will buses and river bus services, where some extra services will also operate. However, all these services may be busy.

TfL Ambassadors and volunteers will also be on hand to provide travel information and advice on the ground. Customers are urged to plan ahead and to check before you travel at tfl.gov.uk and by following @TfLTravelAlerts, @TfLTrafficNews and @TfLBusAlerts on Twitter.

Those public transport workers who are on duty during the strike will be doing their very best to keep London moving and open for business.
