Tomorrow’s Underground strike has been called off by the RMT union and tube services in the capital will operate as normal, TfL has announced.
The Rail and Maritime Transport union agreed to suspend their 24-hour strike, which was due to start tomorrow evening.
More than 100 representatives of the RMT union who’ve been negotiating pay and conditions on the proposed Night Tube started another round of talks this morning and reached an agreement to suspend the strike this afternoon.
General Secretary Mick Cash said: “RMT’s executive has agreed to suspend tomorrow’s action over pay and night tube to allow for further consideration and consultation on the current offer. The union makes it clear that we remain in dispute and the strike action scheduled for February remains on.”
Three other trade unions, Aslef, TSSA and Unite union, had already pulled out of planned industrial action last week after a new offer by TfL. Although the RMT agreed to suspend tomorrow’s strike, they are still in dispute over pay, Night Tube and station staffing. Mick Cash added, “The Union is finalising the details for the continuation of that industrial campaign and the on-going fight over the threat to jobs, services and safety.”
