New dates for two 24-hour tube strikes which could throw the capital’s transport network into chaos have been announced by union bosses.

Two 24-hour tube strikes, originally due to start at 6pm this evening, were called off yesterday but two new walkouts on September 8 and 10 have been proposed.

Leaders from the three unions involved, the RMT, TSSA and Unite, suspended the action as a “gesture of good will” following late talks with London Underground bosses through employment dispute mediators Acas.

Speaking to the Evening Standard yesterday, chancellor George Osborne labelled the proposed strikes "a fundamental assault on the rights of working people to get to work and provide for their  families."

The unions are in dispute over pay and the supposed upset to work-life balance that would come with the all-night service due to begin from September 12.
