The Piccadilly Line will be hit by strikes on the 7th and 8th of November, the tube workers’ union RMT confirmed today, as staff walk out again over an “aggressive and bullying management culture”.

The line, which spreads across north and west London, will be shut down for 24 hours from midday on the 7th as staff walk out.

RMT general secretary Mick Cash said: “RMT is frustrated with the slow and tortuous process when it comes to getting the Piccadilly Line management to address the full raft of issues at the heart of this dispute. That has left us with no option but to confirm this next phase of action early in November.”

Workers previously walked out twice late last month, following the collapse of negotiations between bosses and unions.

“There has been ample opportunity for the management side to listen to the deep-seated concerns of their staff and take the action required to address them. The ball is firmly in their court,” Cash added.

Transport for London (TfL) has been contacted for comment.
