Victoria Line Strike

victoria-lineOur old friend Communist Bob is threatening to bring the Victoria Line to a standstill again on the 5th October with this strike on the Victoria Line over hours.

Shepherd’s Bush dwellers should remember that they can use the Overground between Clapham Junction and Stratford with many tube connections along the way. No problems are forecast on that route. I usually go to South London to work on the Victoria but the Overground gets me to Clapham Junction from Shepherds Bush in just over 10 minutes. There are lots of buses from there to all over the place. Central Line appears unaffected too.

As ever the cause is a pathetic fig leaf to cover his real agenda of proving his worth when this sort of approach to industrial relations seems increasingly irrelevant. Apparently the drivers cab isn't cool enough to do 5 round trips in one go. Bugger the passengers who pay through the nose, get crammed in, and sweat every day before work then.
