Tube managers may opt for union bargaining measures

Further tube strikes have been planned to take place from 21:00 GMT tonight.

Tube managers at London Underground (LU) may decide to use union bargaining measures to prevent further strikes taking place following a further wave of industrial action.

London Evening Standard reports that a planned 24-hour walkout is due to take place from 21:00 GMT tonight (December 17th) that will affect the Northern and Bakerloo lines.

Thousands of people could be affected as they depend on the service to transport them around the city on a night when many workers will be attending their Christmas parties.

Clubs and pubs around the capital have drafted in extra staff to cope with an expected surge in trade from festive bashes, the news source noted.

"Once again, the Rail and Maritime Transport union is showing its utter contempt for Londoners," said a LU employee, adding the organisation is "committed to running as many trains as possible".

This comes after LU workers represented by the trade union Aslef voted to stage industrial action on Boxing Day in a row over pay.
