UK: Metro staff in London to strike February 21-24

Labor union calls on London’s Bakerloo metro staff to strike February 21-24; associated transportation disruptions expected



The Rail, Maritime, and Transport union (RMT) has called on London metro staff operating the Bakerloo line to strike from Friday, February 21, at 10:00 (local time) until the end of the service on Monday, February 24. All other services will operate as normal, though other metro lines and buses will likely experience crowded conditions. The strike may be extended depending on the London Underground's official response.

Crowded conditions on operating lines and other forms of public transportation are to be expected.


Potentially affected individuals are advised to monitor developments to the situation, maintain a flexible travel itinerary, and anticipate transportation disruptions and residual delays.
