Tubelines halts strike as pay deal gets back on track

Strike
action scheduled for 10 June by RMT members at infrastructure company Tubelines
has been called off today by the RMT executive, after talks yielded an improved
pay offer from the company.

"The
company has tabled an improved offer on pay, a reduction in the working week,
and [an improved offer] on travel facilities, and the executive has today
called off action scheduled for Thursday," said RMT general secretary Bob
Crow.

The
RMT has only just called off a strike on South Central Trains after it found it
had scheduled industrial action a minute later than prescribed by law.
