Tube strikes cancelled as London Underground reinstates unfairly sacked driver []

Date: 24/06/2011

A series of Tube strikes planned by the RMT union from Monday 27th June to Friday 1st July have been called off. The strikes were planned because of a row over the sacking of Arwyn Thomas, a driver member of the RMT who was dismissed for ‘unacceptable behaviour’ towards a colleague.

Down The Drain at Bank station. The Waterloo & City Line, as it is officially known, is primarily a rush-hour commuter service providing a direct link between the City of London, and Waterloo Station. The line, opened in 1898, is totally underground, passes below the Thames, and serves only the 2 stations at Waterloo and Bank (originally City) with a journey time of 4 minutes. The photograph, taken in 1987, shows a train at Bank station, formed of 1940 stock in Network SouthEast livery. Following railway privatisation, responsibility for the line passed to London Underground.
