Tube bosses silent over continued Night Tube strikes

Night Tube strike action goes ahead this evening.

LONDON TRANSPORT UNION RMT has called on London Underground to end it's deafening silence over continuing negotiations as the latest phase of Night Tube weekend strike action goes ahead this evening. 

General Secretary Mick Lynch said;

"We are calling on tube bosses to end their deafening silence and take up the opportunity of resuming negotiations with the aim of resolving the Night Tube dispute. The action continues tonight despite the fact that we believe there are simple and cost free options that would enable us to consider suspending the action. We cannot make any progress if LU continue to give us the cold shoulder. 

"With London heading back towards some normality at last the settlement of this dispute should be a priority for the Mayor and his officials and that means showing a willingness to recommence the talks process. 

"The issue at the heart of the dispute, protecting the work/life balance of drivers cannot be swept under the carpet and needs to be addressed rather than dismissed. RMT stands ready to get talks back on. "
