Unfortunatly one of the Tube Unions has called a strike for 26 December as they don’t like how much they get paid for working on a Public Holiday. The High Court refused the application from Transport for London to stop the strike but the Court has failed to publish its reasons.
It seems therefore, that the strike will be going ahead with much disruption to travellers possible.

As it is TfL were running a reduced service that day. Full details of what is running and when over the Holiday period are available at – http://www.tfl.gov.uk/assets/downloads/festive-leaflet.pdf
Perhaps most shockingly for our US Friends – LU said a pay agreement with Tube workers meant drivers have 43 days’ annual leave which means they have to work some public holidays, including Boxing Day.
