Tube Troubles

Oh, oh. . .

Tube strike begins as talks fail

A 48-hour Tube strike has begun after talks broke down between London Underground (LU) bosses and the Rail, Maritime and Transport (RMT) Union.
Millions of passengers face travel disruption during the strike, which began at 1859 BST.
Normal services are not expected to resume until Friday. Alternative plans are in place and Tube bosses said they "regret" the impact on passengers.
The RMT wants a 5% pay rise and a promise of no compulsory redundancies.

Last minute talks between LU and RMT leader Bob Crow at Acas failed to avert the strike. . . more from the BBC

I'm hoping for a quick and happy settlement or getting around London next week could be miserable!
