Planned strikes on London Underground next week suspended, RMT and Aslef unions say

Planned strikes on London Underground have been suspended, the RMT and Aslef unions have said.

Strikes by Tube drivers represented by the Aslef union were scheduled to take place on 26 July and 28 July.

“After a week of intense negotiations, we have made real progress in making sure our members’ working conditions and pensions are protected,” Finn Brennan, Aslef organiser, said in a statement.

RMT also confirmed it had also suspended all strike action planned for next week.

“There has been significant progress made by our negotiating team,” RMT general secretary Mick Lynch said in a statement.

“However this is not the end of the dispute nor is it a victory for the union as yet.”
