Thousands of commuters are going to face commuting chaos as strikes take place on two underground lines on the same day.

Members of the Rail, Maritime and Transport (RMT) union on the Central Line will walk out on November 7, the same day as a strike by the union on the Piccadilly Line.

Both are striking due to a "breakdown in industrial relations".

RMT general secretary Mick Cash said: "Industrial relations on the Central Line have been at breaking point for some time now and the failure of the management to address the issues, and a conscious decision to up the ante by attempting to single out and pick off individual members of staff, has tipped the situation over the edge and has led to the announcement of strike action today.

"There is a growing culture on London Underground that revolves around refusing to employ enough drivers, bullying staff and expecting our members to pick up the pieces when the service breaks down.

"RMT members on the Central Line have made it clear that they have had enough and are prepared to stand up and fight for workplace respect and justice.

"Tube bosses are well aware of the level of anger on the job and it's down to them to take the situation seriously and engage in genuine talks around reaching a solution to the current disputes."

Members of drivers union Aslef on the Central Line are also striking on November 7 in a similar dispute.
