Travelers are advised to avoid early use of the subway network strikes Morning.

Members of the Rail, Maritime and Transport Union (RMT) are scheduled to march out for 24 hours over proposals to cut 600 jobs, change jobs and pensions.

Transport for London has proposed not to replace up to 600 jobs if they become vacant as part of plans to achieve financial sustainability.

But the organization said no proposals on pensions or conditions had been submitted at this time and no one would lose their job.

Commuters were given a 24-hour warning of “serious disruption” from 8am Monday.

Many stations will be closed and others may only operate for a limited time.

Services including DLR, London Overground and Trams are unaffected by the industrial action, but could be working at higher than normal levels.

Andy Lord, TfL Chief Operating Officer, said: “I would like to apologize to London for the impact this strike will have on travel.

“We know it will hurt London and the economy at a time when public transport is playing a crucial role in the capital’s recovery.

“While our focus is always to help everyone travel through London whenever they want, the expected impact of the RMT’s action means we have to advise people to only travel tomorrow if necessary as many Train stations may be closed.

“Alternatives to the subway, including the bus and rail networks, are likely to be much busier than usual.”

RMT General Secretary Mick Lynch said: “We are calling for a face-to-face meeting with Mayor Sadiq Khan to clean up this mess.”

“There is no point in our union continuing to sit opposite management representatives who have neither the inclination nor the authority to negotiate an agreement when the power lies with the mayor.”

Which lines are affected?

All TfL operated London Underground lines are expected to be affected including: Bakerloo, Central, Circle, District, Hammersmith & City, Jubilee, Metropolitan, Northern, Piccadilly, Victoria and Waterloo & City.

The newly opened Elizabeth Line will not be affected by the Tube strike on Monday 6th June as it is not technically a Tube line running on TfL Rail as part of the Crossrail project.

Other TfL services, including London Overground and Trams, as well as rail services are also unaffected by the industrial action and will remain operational.

However, journeys on those services that remain open during the strike – including those like the Elizabeth Line, which stop at many central London Underground stations – are expected to be severely impacted and stronger than usual.
