Unions planning to launch 48 hours of strikes this week have suspended their action, it was confirmed this evening
Members of the TSSA, RMT and Unite were due to walk out for 24 hours from 6.30pm tomorrow, and then again from 6.30pm on Thursday, after they reached a stalemate in negotiations over the launch of the Night Tube, due to take place on 12 September.
But in a statement today Unite said it had called off the strike as a "gesture of goodwill" as talks with London Underground continued.
“There are still some remaining sticking points, but we feel sufficient progress has been made to suspend industrial action as an act of goodwill," said Unite regional officer Hugh Roberts.
It is good news for London that the strike has been suspended. We will now continue to work with the unions, so that we can resolve this dispute and get on with delivering for our customers, businesses and London.
