Tube strike called off

The Rail, Maritime and Transport (RMT) union has called off tomorrow’s planned Tube strike.

Union officials secured a 4.2% pay deal for members, which it has recommended they accept. An agreement was also reached on the protection of jobs, reports the BBC.

The RMT had expressed concerns over job security following last month’s transferral of maintenance work from contractor Tube Lines to Transport for London (TfL).

Union general secretary Bob Crow said: “Once again, RMT members have shown that if you are prepared to stand together and take action in defence of pay, jobs and working conditions, you can win.”

TfL said the pay offer was consistent with those accepted by Tube workers last year.
