Tube Strike Talks Adjourned

According to Bob Crow "the golden opportunity" to resolve the latest pay dispute didn't go too well. London Underground's managers and union reps met to discuss the pay rise and although LU said talks were "constructive" no agreement was struck.

But there's still hope, as the LU spokesperson said "London Underground again put forward what is a very fair, final three-year pay and conditions offer.

"It is a three-year deal with an above inflation pay rise in each year, plus a cash bonus for all staff if customer satisfaction targets are met or exceeded.

"We are hopeful that we can reach an agreement without the need for industrial action."

RMT leader Bob Crow said "Our members have been waiting since last April for the pay rise that is due to them, and all we have sought for the last year is the opportunity to negotiate seriously."

The result of the pay ballot is due later this month, so watch this space
