In November Mayor Boris Johnson announced that all ticket offices across the Tube network will close with the loss of 950 posts
The TSSA and RMT unions have staged two strikes in response to the closures which will see ticket offices close on 256 stations and result in the loss of 950 jobs.
A three day strike by Tube workers which was due to start tonight in protest at plans to scrap ticket offices and axe hundreds of jobs has been suspended.
Liberal Democrat and Conservative Members on the London Assembly have condemned tonight’s planned strike by members of the RMT union, branding it “totally unnecessary”.
Tube passengers have been warned of disruption if Monday’s strike by members of the RMT union goes ahead as planned.
