Tube strikes called off after ‘positive’ TfL and RMT discussions

Planned strike action from Monday to Thursday will no longer go ahead after RMT made progress in discussions with TfL today.

RMT general secretary Mick Lynch said: “Following further positive discussions today, the negotiations on a pay deal for our London Underground members can now take place on an improved basis and mandate with significant further funding for a settlement being made available.

“This significantly improved funding position means the scheduled strike action will be suspended with immediate effect and we look forward to getting into urgent negotiations with TfL in order to develop a suitable agreement and resolution to the dispute.”

Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan posted on X: “This week’s tube strikes have now been suspended.

“Londoners and visitors to our city will no longer face several days of disruption.

“This shows what can be achieved by engaging with trade unions and transport staff rather then working against them.”
