Tube strike goes ahead

GUARDS on London Underground's Northern Line are due to strike today and on Tuesday after last-minute talks aimed at resolving a jobs dispute ended in failure. Members of the Rail Maritime and Transport union have already staged two walkouts in recent weeks in a row over the treatment of displaced guards. The union said guards who have to change jobs because of the introduction of driver-only operated Tube trains could have to travel up to four hours to a new job.
