Tube Strike Next Week Called Off As London Underground Staff Reach A Deal


A planned 48-hour strike by London Underground workers next week over Tube ticket office closures has been suspended following "substantial progress" in talks, said the RMT union on Thursday.

Members of the Rail, Maritime and Transport union had been instructed not to book on for any shifts between 2100 hrs on October 14 and 2059 hrs on October 16.

The walkout threatened travel disruption in the capital and would have coincided with strikes by council workers and civil servants across the country in separate disputes over pay, jobs and cuts.
