Thanks.  I now see that TFL have finally admitted that[*0]:

Which is a lot more helpful than their previous stance of "we're trying
very hard to ignore the strike", presuming that everybody knows the
details of the strike in question, or doesn't need to know about it in
advance for planning purposes.

They also suggest it'll be Friday morning before services are back to
normal, so if the strike does go ahead it will affect our gathering on
