London Underground strike suspended by RMT

Strike
action by RMT members at London Underground scheduled for 10 June has been
suspended by the RMT executive.

"Since
last night’s emergency talks, there have been further detailed exchanges with
London Underground, which have now been considered by the RMT executive,"
general secretary Bob Crow said today.

"London
Underground has indicated that it is now prepared to negotiate seriously on all
of our aspirations on pay and conditions, including a shorter working week. The
door to a long-term deal remains open.

"As
a result, further detailed talks are to be held later this month, and next
Thursday’s strike has been suspended," Crow said.
