The strike over wages, which was expected to cause significant disruption until Friday, was suspended by the RMT union following “positive discussions” with the transport operator in the British capital.
A strike which promised significant disruption in the London Underground until Thursday was suspended at the last minute at the end of the day on Sunday following “positive discussions” during negotiations on wages, the RMT union announced.
“Following further positive discussions today, negotiations on a pay deal can now proceed on a better basis,” Mick Lynch, general secretary of the RMT (rail, maritime and transport) union, said in a statement. Thus, “the planned strike action is suspended with immediate effect and we look forward to entering into urgent negotiations with Tfl”, the transport operator in the British capital, “to achieve a suitable agreement and resolution of the conflict,” he added.
The strike, which started on Friday for certain categories of staff, was expected to result in significant disruptions or even zero traffic from the end of Sunday until Thursday inclusive.
