Union representatives meeting with Acas this morning have confirmed press reports that they are willing to do a deal to prevent the next two scheduled tube strikes.
Yesterday's 24-hour tube strike by Aslef and RMT members was the first of three Monday strikes over safety and working conditions and brought the tube network to a standstill.
Union conditions include the setting up of a joint safety body with union representation, no compulsory redundancies and promises that workers will not be transferred between tube companies when the network is split up.
“We are having meetings with London Underground managers this week and if they meet our conditions then next week's strike will be avoided,” said an Aslef spokesperson.
