The Underground Railway (Tube) workers in London are on a 48 hours strike from 29th April protesting against the proposal to close the ticket offices across the tube net work causing loss of hundreds of jobs. As per reports, many of the tube stations were closed due to the strike.
Underground trains ( Tube) are the main travel mode in London and nearby places. It is just like the local trains of Mumbai. If the tubes are stopped, then London will almost be at a standstill.
The strike has started since the management was not prepared to concede the demands or even discuss with the union.
