London Underground passengers have been warned to expect major disruptions while the strikes take place starting November and leading up to Christmas. TFL has warned the strikes could lead to a “significantly reduced service on these lines all day with little or no service in places”.

The strikes will begin on Friday November 26 with a 24-hour walkout at 4am and it is planned to last until December 18.

Following this, there will also be action beginning at 8:30pm to 4:30am every Saturday and Sunday, starting this weekend.

The action, which is due to continue every weekend until December 18 unless an agreement is reached, was called to align with the reintroduction of Night Tube services.

The TFL has said drivers will have to work about four Night Tube shifts a year which clashed with the new system created in May where Night Tube staff were added to TfL’s “day Tube” workforce.

“The return of Night Tube is a hugely significant moment for the night-time economy and for Londoners travelling late at night who will have improved journey times and an additional safe travel option.

“We have been meeting with the RMT for a number of months through Acas to try and resolve their issues and we remain open to talking further.”

Several routes will be affected including the Central, Jubilee, Northern, Piccadilly and Victoria lines.

The Bakerloo, Circle, District, Hammersmith and City and Metropolitan lines may have some disruptions, but no strikes are happening on the lines themselves.

There are expected to be significant delays on the Central, Jubilee, Northern, Piccadilly and Victoria lines, with little or no service in places.
