Tube strike brings 2nd day of travel chaos to Londoners


LONDON (AP) — Londoners are facing travel chaos after around 10,000 transport workers walked off their jobs for the second day this week, leaving almost all of the capital’s subway lines suspended or severely disrupted. Members of the Rail, Maritime and Transport union are on strike for 24 hours in a dispute over jobs, pensions and working conditions. Picket lines were set up outside subway stations Thursday, and huge queues built up at bus stations and taxi ranks across the city as people tried to get to work by other means. Transport for London has asked people to work from home if they could. A strike on Tuesday led to the underground network, known as the Tube, being suspended during rush hour.
