Tube strikes scheduled for next week could affect services for FOUR days

Commuters are being warned that the Tube services could come to a standstill for most of next week if two separate strikes go ahead.

Workers from three of the four Tube unions are due to take industrial action next Tuesday from 6.30pm for 24 hours and again on Thursday evening for the same amount of time.

Tube services on Wednesday and Friday could be seriously affected due to a knock on effect from the walkouts.

Members of RMT, TSSA and Unite are due to take part in the strikes called over pay and shift arrangements for the new all night Tube service, but their counterparts in Aslef will turn up to work.

Plans to launch the 24-hour service next month have been delayed.

Two previous strikes have brought the entire Tube system to a halt with commuters being forced to use other modes of transport.
