Londoners are preparing to endure yet more travel chaos as trains and underground services will face disruption from strikes in early November.

The ongoing dispute over pay and conditions has seen strike action disrupt public transport throughout the summer.

Though strikes were called off after the passing of Queen Elizabeth II, they are set to restart in the next few weeks.

But when will this strike take place, and what is the reason behind the industrial action?

Here’s everything you need to know.

When is the next Tube strike?

It will see members of the RMT Union walk out for 24 hours as the long-running dispute continues.

These walkouts will affect London Underground and Overground networks (Arriva Rail London), with services resuming the following day.

During the August strikes, TfL advised customers to avoid travelling on the Tube and only use the rest of the TfL network if essential. It is likely similar advice will be in place for this strike.

The strike will take place during other planned national rail strikes, which will also take place on November 3, 5, and 7. These are likely to lead to five days worth of national rail disruption, as strikes often affect services the following day.

In the case of London Underground, the Rail, Maritime and Transport union (RMT) has cited the ongoing dispute over jobs, pensions and working conditions in the past.

However, speaking about the upcoming rail strikes, RMT General Secretary Mick Lynch has said: ‘The dishonesty of Network Rail bosses has reached a new low in this national rail dispute.’  

‘On the one hand they were telling our negotiators that they were prepared to do a deal while planning to torpedo negotiations by imposing unacceptable changes to our members terms and conditions.’

‘Our members are livid with these duplicitous tactics, and they will now respond in kind with sustained strike action.’

RMT general secretary Mick Lynch has previously said workers ‘have been messed around by TfL and mayor Sadiq Khan’.
