Submitted by rmtlondon on 2 September, 2015 - 21:38
We note the report from our Lead Officer. LUL have suspended Night Tube and talks will resume at ACAS. This is due to the action and resolve of our members. We therefore instruct the General Secretary to suspend the industrial action planned for the 8th and 10th September, and advise London Underground.
We further instruct the General Secretary:-
- To give a full report of our progress in talks to the Rally of our members on 7th September
- To inform members by letter, text and e-mail of the reasons we have suspended the action, and invite them to the Rally on 7th September
