London faces another wave of strikes this month that will leave millions of commuters homeless – while workers in other sectors are also taking industrial action.

Rail strikes earlier in the summer have already thwarted many people’s plans, impacting the FA Cup final, the Epsom Derby and England’s friendly at Lord’s – with unions warning there was no end in sight to the longstanding dispute.

Industrial action across the transport network did not surprise rail users, who have been on strike for over a year – but they are not the only ones to pull out in July.

The RMT Union is staging another series of strikes this month that will affect travel in the capital – and the rest of the country.

After resigning on July 20th, they will also strike on Saturday July 22nd and Saturday July 29th.

The union has been taking industrial action for over a year over a longstanding dispute over wages, jobs and working conditions.

RMT Secretary General Mick Lynch said: “The Government continues to tie up companies and will not allow them to come up with a package that can settle this dispute.”

“Our members have now voted to strike three times in the last 12 months – the last of which coincided with knowing the full details of the rail operators’ substandard offer.”

In addition to the strikes, Aslef is imposing another week of its overtime ban, which is likely to affect hundreds of services.

The new week of action will run from Monday 31st July to Friday Saturday 5th August followed by similar overtime hours from 3rd to 8th July and 17th to 22nd July.

The Aslef union says members who have not received a pay rise in four years do not have to sacrifice their working conditions just to receive a non-inflationary raise.

Aslef has turned down an offer of a 4% deal that would increase the average wage of a train driver to £65,000 a year for two years running.

RMT and Aslef members working on the London Underground will hold an ‘Action Week’ Starts Sunday July 23rd, ends Saturday July 29th.

TfL advises that there will be little to no service on Tuesday 25 July and Thursday 27 July, while on Wednesday 26 July and Friday 28 July there will be no subways at all – including the night subway.

The RMT said the measure was in response to the threat to 600 network jobs, impacting every aspect of the subway, including stations and maintenance.

RMT General Secretary Mick Lynch said: “This week of action will bring the London Underground to a standstill and show how important the work of our members is.”

“Plans by TfL to cut 600 jobs and attack our members’ pensions are simply unacceptable.”


Hospital advisers in England have resigned in a 48-hour strike from 7 a.m. Thursday 20 July to 7 a.m. Saturday 22 July 2023.

During this time, many medical services will shut down and so-called “Christmas insurance” will be provided.

This means the consultants will continue to serve in emergency and emergency care, including emergency departments, critical care, emergency surgery and maternity services.

In cases where there is a risk of serious harm from a delay in supply – such as Urgent palliative care and end-of-life care, dialysis, radiotherapy for cord compression, urgent maternity care, mental health care and intensive care cancer care are also covered.

However, non-urgent surgeries and outpatient appointments such as hip and knee replacements and cataract removals are being postponed and rescheduled.

Clinic dentists are also on strike for the 48-hour period.

Another strike could happen August 24th and 25th if no agreement has been reached on a salary increase by then.
