MILLIONS OF COMMUTERS RELIEVED AS TOMORROW’S TUBE STRIKES ARE CALLED OFF
Transport for London had advised all travellers to stay off the Tube after 1pm on Tuesday if the talks failed.
But giving a glimmer of hope for travellers tomorrow, Mick Lynch, General Secretary for the Rail, Maritime and Transport union, confirmed this afternoon: “Following extensive and wide ranging discussions through the ACAS machinery we have hammered out enough ground to allow those talks to continue.
“As a result this week’s strike action is suspended although the rest of the planned action remains on.”
TfL had said the strikes were likely to affect the entire network, and could have begun earlier than planned.
