Following constructive talks at ACAS yesterday, Transport for London can confirm the suspension of this week’s Tube strike planned by the RMT and TSSA unions. The discussions have led to an agreement on further talks over London Underground’s modernisation plans.
The proposal made at ACAS includes the following commitments:
- That the unions will suspend this week’s strike action
- Two months of intensive talks, to examine LU’s proposals in detail, during which time there will be no further industrial action; and,
- As was always intended as part of the formal consultation, a review, station by station, of LU’s proposals which could result in some ticket offices remaining open. TFL have always been prepared to listen to constructive proposals.
