Tube strike set for Boxing Day

City A.M. Reporter
LONDON Underground workers have voted in favour of festive strike action after peace talks over bank holiday pay collapsed, the Aslef union said yesterday.

Tube drivers will walk out on 26 December, 18 January and 25 January after a ballot for a strike achieved 90 per cent support from members.

The Boxing Day action could cause havoc for supporters of London’s Arsenal and West Ham football clubs, who are due to play at the Gunners’ Emirates stadium on that day.
