London commuters are facing chaos on Monday morning (June 6) as a major Tube strike action goes ahead and impacts all stations. 

It comes as the Rail Maritime Union (RMT) called more than 4,000 station staff out on strike for 24 hours across the city starting at one minute past midnight. 

Quickly after 6am on Monday, major stations including Bakerloo, Circle, District, Hammersmith & City, Metropolitan, Piccadilly, Victoria and Waterloo & City lines were all closed. 

Whilst the Central, Jubilee, and Northern lines are all running a special service and the DLR is partly suspended. 

Andy Lord, TfL’s chief operating officer, said: “I’d like to apologise to London for the impact this strike will have on journeys.

“We know it’s going to be damaging to 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 on helping everyone travel around London whenever they want, the expected impact of the RMT’s action means we have to advise people to only travel if necessary, as many stations may be closed."

Lord also added: “Working with us to find a resolution is the best course of action, avoiding the disruption this strike will cause to Londoners and the economy.”

The strikes come as RMT say that, under current proposals, 600 jobs will be lost, working agreements will be torn up and the looming threat to pensions remains in place.

General secretary Mick Lynch said: “We are demanding a direct face to face meeting with mayor Sadiq Khan to sort this mess out.

“There’s no point in our union continuing to sit opposite management representatives who have neither the inclination nor the authority to negotiate a settlement, when the power lies with the mayor.”

RMT members on the Tube are also taking action short of a strike, meaning station staff might not work overtime, until Sunday July 10, which may result in short notice station closures.
