TfL Press Release – RMT industrial action means potential Tube disruption, but services will run over the Jubilee weekend

  • Londoners and visitors can be assured the network will be running over the Jubilee weekend, although customers should check before they travel in case of short notice changes 
  • From Friday 3 June until Sunday 10 July, the RMT will carry out action short of strike that may impact journeys 
  • On Monday 6 June, the RMT will take strike action at Tube stations across the network 
  • TfL expects severe disruption across the network on 6 June with a limited number of Tube stations open and reduced hours of operation. Customers are advised to avoid travelling on this day unless necessary 
  • Strike action has been called despite there being no proposals to change pensions or agreements and no job losses 

The public are being urged to follow safety advice and report to Security Teams any suspicions they Transport for London (TfL) is issuing travel advice ahead of planned RMT action short of strike at Tube stations from Friday 3 June, and a planned station staff strike on Monday 6 June. 

From Friday 3 June until Sunday 10 July, the RMT has planned action short of strike, meaning station staff might not work overtime or rest days. Journeys may be impacted by this and short notice station closures are possible, although TfL is doing everything it can to keep stations open. Interchange stations will be prioritised.

TfL expects to run a service during the 3 June to 10 July action, including the Platinum Jubilee weekend, and plans to keep all stations open, but customers should check before they travel and listen for announcements in case of short notice changes. Other modes of transport, including buses, DLR, London Overground and the newly opened Elizabeth line, will be running over the entire Bank Holiday weekend, although services could be busier than usual. 

On Monday 6 June, RMT strike action will be taking place across London Underground stations. While train services will run, TfL expects severe disruption across the network from the start of service on Monday 6 June to 08:00 on Tuesday 7 June, with many stations – especially those in the centre – closed. Those stations that can be opened, may only open for limited periods and the situation is likely to change throughout the day depending on whether TfL has enough staff to safely keep stations open.

Customers are advised to avoid travelling on the Tube on Monday 6 June unless necessary. If Tube travel on Monday 6 June cannot be avoided, customers are advised to travel after 08:00 and to complete journeys by 18:00. On Tuesday 7 June, some stations may still be closed at the beginning of the day so it is advised to travel after 08:00. Please allow more time for journeys and check before travelling. For the latest information on how services are operating please use TfL’s real-time travel tools, including status updatesJourney Planner and TfL Go.

This action comes as part of a dispute over pensions, jobs and conditions – despite the fact nobody has or will lose their jobs as a result of the proposals TfL has set out and there are no proposals on pension changes.
