Tube Strike Off - RMT & Tube Lines reach agreement

Tube Lines reaches agreement in principle with the RMT, so that means that 72 hour strike planned for 20th August is off.

Tube Lines and the RMT have today reached agreement in principle on a two year pay deal that will suspend the industrial action and ensure that normal services run on the Jubilee, Northern and Piccadilly lines.

The RMT will now ballot its members with a recommendation to accept the two year pay deal being offered.

Terry Morgan, Chief Executive of Tube Lines said:

This is a good deal for Tube Lines. We are pleased that, following constructive discussions with the RMT today, we have been able to agree in principle a two year deal that will satisfy all parties.”

Hoorah, guess the RMT must have realised this was going to be one of their most unpopular strikes to date.

Tube Strike Called Off

I was so tempted to add - "So expect delays to all destinations" to the end of the line on the poster above.
