Commuter chaos is expected in central London tomorrow as a pipe strike for five lines is announced from 4.30am on Friday morning.

Union leaders said the strike will continue tomorrow with hundreds of thousands of Londoners facing delays as five lines will be closed.

The Victoria, Central, Northern, Jubilee and Piccadilly lines will all be affected as RMT drivers are urged not to show up for work tomorrow.

TfL said the strike would result in “little or no service at locations” where Waterloo and the City Line – which uses Central Line drivers – are also likely to be affected.

“London’s high frequency bus services will continue to run throughout the planned strike, although they are expected to be busier than usual, as will London Overground, DLR, TfL Rail and London Trams,” TfL said in a statement this morning.

The strike is called after an ongoing dispute over night-time events remains unresolved.

The night tube had been suspended since the start of the pandemic, but was to be resumed for the first time tomorrow evening and Saturday.

The RMT claims that workloads imposed on tube drivers would “destroy their work-life balance by bulldozing through additional night and weekend work”.

But TfL said the changes have been approved by other unions and will mean drivers will have to work four night shifts a year.

The union declared its readiness to resume negotiations, while RMT general secretary Mick Lynch said: “We warned months ago that cutting two hundred Night Tube Train Driver positions would create a staff nightmare and LU needs to start seeing that reality. in the eyes and soon.

“The union remains available for further negotiations even at this late stage.”
