RMT Suspends Tube Lines Strike Action As Lu Cancels Scheduled Engineering Works

TUBE UNION RMT confirmed today that industrial action involving Tube Lines staff, due to begin tomorrow, has been suspended after LU management took the unprecedented step of cancelling scheduled weekend engineering works in response to the success of previous rounds of RMT Tube Lines strike action.

RMT General Secretary Bob Crow said:

“ The cancelling of the weekend’s engineering works schedule is a clear recognition by LU of the success of RMT’s previous action and as a result we have no need to proceed with this round of strikes as our objective has been met. Therefore the union is suspending the planned action.

“The dispute, over pensions and passes justice and equality with other LU staff, remains very much on and we will now be reviewing the tactics and the success so far which has been achieved as a result of the solidarity and determination of RMT members.”
