From Metro:

London Underground drivers will strike on Boxing Day and on a further two dates in January, in a dispute over Bank Holiday pay.

The operators from the Aslef union will not work on December 26, as well as on January 18 and 25, after members decided to strike by a margin of 9-1 over the issue of extra pay on the national holiday.

This move will be of massive inconvenience to Londoners and hurt London's retailers - and the wider economy - on a crucial shopping day. Let's hope that the Acas talks lead somewhere and soon.
