  • Thousands of Commuters Stuck as London Tube Strike Enters Second Day

    Chaos, utter chaos. Londoners continued to face hours long delays to their daily commutes as traffics jams stretched for kilometers and swarms of commuters crammed the streets after employees of London's underground went on strike. The London tube strike went into its second day, shutting down the entire undergound network on Monday after members of transit and transport unions declared a general strike. Members of the Rail, Maritime and Transport Workers, or RMT, and Transport Salaried Staffs' Association, or TSSA, declared the strike in protest against London Mayor Sadiq Khan, complaining that he has not reversed layoffs and ticket office closures instigated by former mayor Boris Johnson. The two day strike began on Sunday at 6:00 PM local time and is expected to end on Tuesday morning. Until then, the average commute could last hours longer than usual, so Londoners may want to bundle up a bit tighter before venturing where they need to go.
