London will be hit with rail and Tube strikes
Four unions that serve the London Underground
staff are scheduled to walk out for 24 hours from 6:30 p.m. on Wednesday, July 8,
according to Transport For London.
At the same time, First Great Western train
drivers plan to stage a 48-hour strike on services between the southwest
area and London.
The Tube workers are striking due to wage
disputes; the rail workers are walking to protest job threats and services from
a new train fleet.
Transport For London advised the public to follow updates
