Tube engineers to strike over pay

Workers who drive engineering trains on the London Underground are to stage a series of weekend strikes in a dispute over pay, it was announced today.

Members of the drivers’ union Aslef employed by Tube Lines will walk out this weekend, 22 to 23 May and again on 29 May, with warnings of further action if the row is not resolved.

Tube Lines maintains and upgrades the busy Jubilee, Northern and Piccadilly lines used by more than 1.5M passengers a day, although its work is soon to be taken over by Transport for London, following its purchase of the contractor, which is expected to complete on 30 June.

The strikes threaten to hit weekend maintenance work.
