Transport for London (TfL) have advised that the RMT union is planning station staff strike action on Monday 6 June, as well as further industrial action from Friday 3 June to Sunday 10 July. TFL say that they will do all it can to open as many stations as possible, but is urging customers to plan their journeys ahead of time and check before they travel, as some stations may have to close at short notice.
Travel over the Platinum Jubilee weekend should remain largely unaffected. Londoners and visitors are still encouraged to make the most of the Platinum Jubilee weekend as TfL will run a service throughout, but customers should check before they travel and listen for announcements in case of short notice changes.
Monday 6 June will see many stations closed, especially those in the centre of London. 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 Monday 6 June unless necessary. If customers need to travel on Monday 6 June, they are advised to travel after 08:00 and to complete journeys by 18:00. The impact of the strike action is expected to last until the following morning, with stations closed until 08:00 on Tuesday 7 June.
London’s high-frequency bus services will continue to run throughout the planned industrial action. The newly opened Elizabeth line will run over the Jubilee weekend, with a special service operating on Sunday 5 June from approximately 08:00 - 22:00. Other TfL services, including buses, DLR, Trams, London Overground and TfL Rail are not affected by the strike action and will be running, but customers are advised to check before they travel and expect busier services than normal.
