Planned strikes by drivers on London Underground’s Piccadilly line for tomorrow and Thursday have been suspended.
Members of the Rail, Maritime and Transport (RMT) union were due to stage two 24-hour walkouts later this week in a dispute over industrial relations.
General secretary Mick Cash said Monday afternoon: “The hard work of RMT reps, backed up by the solidarity and determination of RMT members, has enabled us to make enough progress in talks over the issues at the heart of this dispute to allow this week’s action to be suspended and to allow for those talks to continue.
“However, the dispute is not over yet and RMT pays tribute to the Piccadilly line members whose resolve has been instrumental in pushing the negotiations forwards.”
