Just read the BBC article saying its a 2 day strike, hence above suggesting Friday before normality

5% pay-rise and a promise of no compulsory redundancies. Are we in a recession? Are we another union punishing the public?

So whats going to happen then, no service at all or just limited service?

There will be as near to no service as makes no difference. Overground and DLR function so with a bit of lateral thinking you can go most places you need to.

The radio is reporting that the England game might be played behind closed doors now :( They are going to decide later on today. What a farce when people have already made arrangements!

Greedy people want a blooming payrise AND work less hours during a recession? are they mad? sorry but imo they are greedy ungrateful morons if that the case.

my mate who is a train driver earns 40k STARTING salary and i have another mate work works as one of those guys who just stands next to the barrier all day earning 24k.

edit: only 1/3 of the union voted for the strike! what the hell?
