Unions have confirmed four strike dates in August; three rail walkouts, two bus walkouts and one tube walkout as they remain locked in a bitter row over pension and pay.

Friday, August 19 - London Underground and buses

London Underground workers are due to hold a 24-hour strike on Friday, August 19.

RMT leader Mick Lynch said: "Our members will once again take to picket lines in this important dispute over pensions, jobs and conditions.

"They have been messed around by Transport for London and Mayor Sadiq Khan. Unless there can be assurances made about jobs, pensions and detrimental changes to working conditions, then our strike on August 19 will go ahead."
