More London Underground workers are to go on strike later this month as part of a dispute over jobs and pensions.

The Unite union said hundreds of its members in engineering, maintenance and management roles would walk out on 26 and 28 July.

Tube staff who are members of the Aslef drivers’ union and the Rail, Maritime and

Transport (RMT) union are also set to take industrial action this month.

Transport for London has been approached for comment.

As part of the dispute, Unite has called for a guarantee that there would be no increase in employee contributions to the pension scheme, no decrease in employer contributions, and no reduction in pension fund benefits.

It also said it wanted a guarantee that there would be no job losses among London Underground staff.

Unite general secretary Sharon Graham said: “The workers are rightly demanding copper bottomed guarantees from Transport for London”.
