Night drivers are contracted to work 16-hour weeks, the RMT said [Image: PA].

Drivers on the Night Tube are to be balloted over strike action as part of a long-running dispute over jobs.

The Rail Maritime and Transport Union (RMT) said it was balloting members over a block on career progression, which it said had been imposed by London Underground.

It said drivers had been prevented from moving into vacant full-time jobs that Night Tube station staff were able to.

Transport for London said there was “no need” to threaten industrial action.

Last week, Aslef announced it was balloting its members over the same issue.
