Tube strikes cause delays and train service alterations from Shenfield and Gidea Park

07:32 30 April 2014

Tube strikes have caused alterations and delays on national rail services to London from Shenfield and Gidea Park.

Train operators Abellio Greater Anglia have also advised that services are expected to be busier than usual.

Certain trains will not stop at Ilford, Chadwell Heath, Goodmayes or Seven Kings stations.

And trains from Shenfield and Gidea Park to London are seeing delays of up to 10 minutes.

Workers end their strike at 8.59pm tonight, but disruption may continue into Thursday morning.

Talks at the conciliation service Acas on Monday lasted just a few hours with no sign of a breakthrough, despite the RMT saying it had put forward proposals which it believed could have led to the strike being suspended.

Its acting general secretary Mick Cash said: “London Underground have dug themselves into an entrenched position and have refused to move one inch from their stance of closing every ticket office, in breach of the agreement reached previously through Acas which enabled us to suspend the previous round of action.

“Despite the spin from London Underground, nothing that they are proposing is about ‘modernisation’.

“The current plans, closing every ticket office and axing nearly a thousand safety-critical jobs, is solely about massive austerity cuts driven centrally by David Cameron and his Government and implemented by Mayor Boris Johnson.”

Members of the RMT are also set to strike for 72 hours from 9pm on Monday May 5, if no agreement is made.
