Mayor’s intervention settles Tube dispute

The
Tube dispute has been settled following the intervention of the Mayor of
London.

Unions
have called off the threat of further strikes after Ken Livingstone promised to
take the pay dispute to non-binding mediation when he takes over the running of
London Underground.

Although
Transport for London is not likely to take over until next April, union leaders
said they felt they would get a big pay rise for Tube workers.

A
London Underground spokesman said the mayor is simply delaying the problem, not
solving it.
