London tube strikes called off
RMT union says industrial action over staff safety and job cuts on London Underground has been suspended
Planned strikes by London Underground workers that were expected to cause widespread disruption on Monday and Tuesday next week have been suspended.
Members of the Rail, Maritime and Transport (RMT) union were due to walk out for 16 hours from 6pm on Sunday and again for 15 hours from 10am on Tuesday in a dispute over job losses.
Delighted we have been able to get the tube strikes suspended. This shows what we can achieve by talking and engaging with staff. pic.twitter.com/5FyBRzzo0M
