The RMT union have said they are going to ballot members over industrial action

London Underground maintenance and engineering workers are to stage a three-day strike over the weekend of the FA Cup Final in a row over safety.

The RMT Union said more than 1,000 of its members will walk out from 07:00 BST on 17 May.

It will affect football fans travelling to Wembley on 18 May for the final between Manchester City and Watford.

The union claimed train preparation and inspection schedules were being “hacked back”.
