Strike resolved, RMT union says

The Rail, Maritime and Transport Union (RMT) said yesterday the issue of job cuts on London Underground (LU), which led to a 48-hour strike in June, has been resolved. The RMT said it was a "major victory" as the strike action had saved its members from compulsory redundancies. LU disputed RMT’s claims, saying it had not changed its stance since the strike. The industrial action in June was kicked off by job cuts after the failed maintenance firm Metronet was taken over LU.
