Members of the Rail, Maritime and Transport (RMT) union will walk out from 9pm on Monday April 28 for two days and again from 9pm on Monday May 5 for three days in a long-running row over Tube ticket office closures.

The first two days of action will take place ahead of a May Day event in London in memory of former RMT leader Bob Crow, and politician and campaigner Tony Benn, who died within days of each other last month.

In February, an identical strike took place over 48 hours which resulted in a meltdown of the transport network.
