first_img Tube strikes caused major delays but failed to paralyse London yesterday whatsapp whatsapp A THIRD wave of tube strikes failed to paralyse the capital yesterday as London Underground maintained around 40 per cent of trains despite the walkout.Speculation that another strike will take place over Christmas and New Year eased after the Transport Salaried Staffs Association said they will not recommend the action to its members.Some stations were closed yesterday and others experienced severe delays as a fraction of the usual workforce struggled to keep the transport system running. Services are expected to return to normal today.The RMT union insisted the industrial action was a success and said every line on the system was either suspended, part suspended or running ghost trains through closed stations.General secretary Bob Crow said support for the strike remained “rock solid” and questioned Transport for London’s claims that almost half of tube trains were running.Workers are protesting against London Underground’s plan to eliminate 800 jobs through the reduction of station staffing and opening hours at some ticket offices.
