Episode notes

The biggest rail strike since 1989 is imminent unless an agreement can be reached. It comes as the RMT union has announced a new Tube strike that will coincide with it, adding to what is already set to be major disruption.

The union confirmed 10,000 of its members are set to walk out on Tuesday, 21st June as part of a dispute over pensions and job losses. Workers are already preparing to shut down the country’s rail network with strikes on 21st, 23rd and 25th June.

The Evening Standard’s Political Reporter Rachael Burford explains just how bad this could all be for London.
