Alstom-Metro Tube train maintenance industrial action suspended following significantly improved offer

TRANSPORT UNION RMT has confirmed that industrial action by Alstom-Metro tube maintenance staff over pay and conditions has been suspended following receipt of a significantly improved offer from the company.

RMT will now consult members on the new offer through a referendum ballot with a recommendation to accept.

RMT General Secretary Bob Crow said;

“It is a testament to the solidarity and determination of our members that their action has enabled our negotiators to secure this new offer which includes a significant uplift for our lowest paid grades.

“One again RMT members have shown that if you stand strong and are prepared to take action in support of justified demands you can make substantial progress. At a time when working people are being told that they have to accept cuts and pay freezes we have proved that unity is strength.”
