Tomorrow's DLR strike called off

A 48-hour strike on the Docklands Light Railway due to start tomorrow has been called off, according to reports from RMT London Calling.

The GGC has agreed to accept pay offers from Serco Docklands AND Carlisle. As a result all strikes are called off.

Transport for London has confirmed the announcement, saying that services will run as normal.

The RMT members' strike was due to affect services from 4.30am 29 January until 4.29am 31 January.

The planned strike was intended as a reponse to an ongoing dispute between the RMT union and Serco, which operates the DLR, over pay and working conditions.

There are no signs that the 48-hour DLR strike starting on 4 February (to coincide with a general underground strike) will be called off.
