48-hour strike begins on London Underground

48-hour strike begins on London Underground

LONDON (AFP) - Workers on London's Underground train system began a 48-hour strike at 9pm on Monday (4am Singapore time on Tuesday), threatening chaos for commuters and hitting football supporters attending Arsenal's match with Newcastle. The action was called by the Rail, Maritime and Transport union (RMT) in protest at plans to close all ticket offices on the "Tube" system, which they say will jeopardise hundreds of jobs and safety standards. The strike, called after talks between union bosses and London Underground broke down earlier in the day, will cost the British capital millions of pounds. Boards were erected outside stations offering advice to fans trying to get home from the Emirates Stadium after Arsenal hosted Newcastle in the Premier League.
