Tomorrow's DLRStrike called off

The planned 48-hour DLR strike by the RMT union due to begin tomorrow has been called off.

The union had threatened a walk out over proposed changes in rosters at the control centre in Poplar. Talks were held over the weekend and the union Serco said an agreement had been reached.

Managing director of Serco David Godley said the union was “very pleased with the positive outcome.” He added that “safety remains our number one priority”.
