Transport for London has warned passengers to face some disruption through the strike

London Underground employees on the District are staging a 24-hour strike amid a row over the remedy of a driver.

Transport for London (TfL) say the motive force is alleged to have been concerned in “three” separate security incidents “inside 11 weeks”.

The motive force is alleged to have “mutually” determined to return to a job on a station, however union Aslef dispute this.

Passengers are being warned to count on some delays on the District .

‘Minimal’ impression

London Underground’s Nigel Holness stated: “With so many incidents in a brief house of time, regardless of a number of weeks of coaching and help, it was merely not protected for this worker to proceed in a job as a driver.”

TfL say the impression of the strike is “anticipated to be minimal” in central London, however there will likely be “extra time” between trains on the western department of the and east of Tower Hill.

There will likely be no companies to Kensington (Olympia).

Finn Brennan, of Aslef, claimed London Underground bosses “threatened a disciplinary listening to to make the motive force ‘agree’ to being redeployed”.

“As an alternative of recognising the issues of our members, and reps, administration are refusing to acknowledge that they’ve did not comply with their very own procedures and now refuse to speak to this union.”
