Tube Strike definitely been suspended

After my uncertainty yesterday, the London Underground Industrial action originally planned for yesterday and today has been called off. Hoorah.

Basically London Underground bosses have talked with the RMT and agreed that immediate action was required to improve track safety standards. According to
This is Local London:

"RMT General Secretary Bob Crow said LU and the infrastructure companies had agreed immediate action was required to improve track safety standards.

"The employers have agreed that night-time track inspections on open sections of track are to be double-manned immediately and that an emergency review of track patrolling, fault reporting and fixing will also start as a matter of urgency."

However, Mr Crow emphasised that the RMT was still in dispute with Tube employers over safety, and that industrial action could still be taken."
