//London Underground workers based at two Tube stations are to strike for one day over the Jubilee bank holiday weekend in a row over bullying.
Members of the Rail, Maritime and Transport union at Euston and Green Park will walk out on Friday 3 June.//

Mick Lynch. General Secretary // claimed the strike would "cause significant disruption to people wishing to celebrate the Queen's Jubilee"//

And he's happy about that? How mean spirited.

Typical of the RMT.

Mick Lynch. General Secretary // claimed the strike would "cause significant disruption to people wishing to celebrate the Queen's Jubilee"//
unless those people are tube workers, or don't live in london, or are celebrating with a street party

It's planned to coincide with the service of thanksgiving at St Paul's - the one thing the queen has said she really would like to attend. Thousands will want to go to line the route and give the queen - and their flags - a wave.
those 2 stations are nowhere near st pauls though, are they? (admit im a bit hazy about geography, esp London)
makes me doubt the supervisory skills of a manager at two stations

Still mean, bednobs.
Maybe it's just a bargaining ploy. Talk of a strike concentrates people's minds.
From the link; "But Transport for London (TfL) said the action should not cause any disruption."
So those who want to "give the queen - and their flags - a wave" ought not to have any problems doing so.

Let's hope they don't, ken - as much as that may disappoint Mr Lynch.
They'll probably lay on a replacement bus service for the queen.

Clearly you dont. Euston is a terminus so people need to catch a tube. Walking is a bit far for many. Its not just the station to get to that has be open, the one to board needs to be open.
This is hardly a surprise. The Unions see a weakness in Johnson so are flexing their muscles.

This isn't about the government. It's about bullying in the workplace.
Of course it is Naomi.

//It's planned to coincide with the service of thanksgiving at St Paul's//
Won't most people attending cab it there (or near to it) or stay in local hotels ?
Can't see many travelling on the tube in all their finery!
Question Author
RH, most people who go won't be attending the service. They'll be going to watch the procession pass by - and for that they don't go in their finery. There will be thousands lining the route - as there always is for big royal events.
And they will be able to use other stations and buses to get there.
2 stations closed or on reduced service is not going to snarl up the whole thing.
