Strike action across London and South East rail network
Combined strike action by up to 400 train drivers and other rail workers is set to bring Southern and London Underground to a standstill.
There will be further Southern strike action, which will coincide with disruption to the Piccadilly and Hammersmith & City lines on the tube.
Drivers in Aslef voted 87% in favour of joining the dispute on Southern with the strikes to take place on 13, 14 and 16 December. Another three-day walkout by Southern RMT guards is planned for 6-8 December.
The RMT has also announced 24-hour walkouts by train drivers on the Piccadilly and Hammersmith & City lines from 9.30pm on 6 December.
Mick Whelan, the Aslef general secretary, said: "Our trade dispute with the company is that there should be no introduction and or extension of new driver-only operated routes on Southern without the agreement of Aslef."
Both the Piccadilly and Hammersmith & City line walkouts follow a breakdown in industrial relations.
The RMT reports "heavy handed and aggressive management" on the Hammersmith & City line, and "ripped up" policies and procedures on the Piccadilly line.
TSSA station staff on London Underground have also announced action, over staffing levels, voting 67% in favour of a strike.
