TfL beats chaos as Tube keeps running

TRANSPORT for London (TfL) operated 40 per cent of its Tube services yesterday as the second 24-hour strike launched by trade unions RMT and Transport Salaried Staffs’ Association (TSSA), hit the capital.

The transport group said that 10 of the 11 lines that make up the Underground network ran services yesterday as the strike, which began on Sunday night, finished yesterday evening.

It is expected that London Underground services will operate a near normal service this morning.

TfL struck out at the unions, calling their predictions of “paralysis” to Tube services as a failure.

The RMT and TSSA unions are at odds with Tube management over proposals to axe 800 ticket office jobs.
