One of two Tube strikes called off

Tube strike action planned for tomorrow has been called off following negotiations between union officials and London Underground.

The action was suspended after the Rail Maritime and Transport (RMT) union announced London Underground had “agreed not to impose a range of new procedures”.

Train drivers’ union Aslef had already announced it was pulling out of the strike on 21 February.

However, both unions said a co-ordinated strike on 2 March was set to go ahead.

The dispute covers a range of staffing issues from London Underground’s policy on signals passed at danger, to health and safety, alleged harassment and bargaining arrangements.

London Underground said it hoped to resolve the outstanding issues through continued negotiations.
