>> WTF! Yet Another Tube Strike Coming Up: Enough Of This Crap Already!



First of all we believe, that everybody who is doing a job of whatever kind, should receive a fair salary. It is understandable that a pay cut is upsetting BUT it is even more upsetting, to pay the expensive full price for an all inclusive weekly Oyster card for the Tube, YET there is no tube! Can I get a refund? Because I work, I pay and I get NOTHING! How is that fair..?? I want to ask the Unions how I will get to work, what I have personally done to them so they think the 3674959736 tube strike will fix THEIR problem while they once again create MY problem


I have had that same trouble when I had my family coming over from Germany for the first time, for a few days only, at the beginning of the month. One of these days was another TUBE STRIKE DAY. We arranged everything, flights, accommodation, the full sightseeing program BUT Yes - getting nowhere - TUBE STRIKE! I am seriously pissed off with this mess. As if life is so affordable and breezy so that we Londoners can take it easy YET ANOTHER TIME. I say NO to this crap, and because I bought my weekly travel card already and this next strike will go on for 4 days - I will ask for a refund - maybe the unions want to personally reimburse. :) Feel free to do the same.

Here are some infos, that might be helpful to you in the next days:

Tuesday 25 August
Tube services will run as normal for most of tomorrow but will stop running at around 18:30, so please complete your Tube journey by this time and travel earlier if possible. Tube services are expected to be exceptionally busy between 16:30 and 18:30.

Wednesday 26 August
We will run as many Tube services as possible according to how many staff sign onto their shifts. However, most Tube services are unlikely to run at all and those that do run may only serve some stations, and may only run for part of the day. Please check our website and Twitter accounts for updates on what is running. Extra bus and river services will run, but all other public transport services and roads will be much busier than usual. Please travel outside the morning and evening peaks if you can.
