Transport trouble ahead as air, rail and tube strikes loom
British Airways and Southern rail staff to walk out in coming weeks, while RMT issues ultimatum to London Underground
More strikes are looming across a range of British transport services, with fresh action announced on British Airways and Southern rail, and an ultimatum issued for another tube strike next month.
Up to 2,900 cabin crew from BA’s “mixed fleet” branch at Heathrow will strike again for three days next week in a row over pay, while conductors on Southern will walk out for 24 hours on Monday 23 January, just ahead of three more days of strikes by drivers that will completely halt its trains. The RMT has said it will escalate action on the London Underground from 6 February if its demands are not met in talks starting next week.
