Strikes on Tube & airline

Travellers using London’s Northern Line Underground should be aware that a strike has been called by the RMT Union for today (1 December).  This will affect service from Barnet, Edgware and Mill Hill through to Morden.  The strike action has been called by the RMT leadership after one of its members was dismissed by London Underground after failing an alcohol breath test.

TfL hopes to keep services operational but customers are advised to check its website for the latest Northern line service levels or to follow @TfLTravelAlerts and @northernline on Twitter. www.tfl.gov.uk/modes/tube/tube-strike

Pilots at Lufthansa are also going on strike today and Tuesday as their dispute over retirement benefits continues.  The walkout, the ninth since April, will affect short- and medium-haul flights across Germany from 12.00 (11:00 GMT) until 23.00.
