On Wednesday, October 4, and Friday, October 6, more than 3,000 union members who had planned to strike were called off after “significant progress” in negotiations.
The RMT union stated “significant progress” had been made in negotiations and that it has managed to save jobs, prevent detrimental changes to rosters, and secure protection of earnings around grading changes.”
“The significant progress means that key elements have been settled although there remains wider negotiations to be had in the job, pensions, and working agreements dispute,” a spokesperson for the union said.
RMT general secretary Mick Lynch stated: “I congratulate all our members who were prepared to take strike action and our negotiations team for securing this victory in our tube dispute.”
“Without the unity and industrial power of our members, there is no way we would have been able to make the progress we have.”
