Fingers crossed Londoners, transport unions are in talks with London Underground to avert Tube strikes

Londoners, cross your fingers and toes for the Transport unions and London Underground are holding talks today to avert a barrage of Tube strikes to be held in the next few weeks.

London Underground bosses and the leaders of Aslef, TSSA and RMT are meeting at conciliation service Acas to try and come to an agreement about pay disputes and the Night Tube.

The unions are planning three 24-hour strikes from the evenings of 26 January, 15 February and 17 February.

TSSA leader Manuel Cortes said: “All Tube unions have ever wanted is to reach an agreement with London Underground management that brings LU’s once flagship Night Tube policy on line for them without compromising passenger safety standards nor the work-life balance of our members.”

Finn Brennan, Aslef’s organiser on London Underground, said: “A world class capital city like London deserves a 24-hour service but it needs to work for those who provide that public service, as well as for the passengers who use it, and the management at TfL. London Underground needs to stop bullying and start negotiating.”

  • If you are new to trading and want to learn how to trade my advice is to Google Superior Trading System, go to their website and let them take care of you like they took care of me. And in only 2 weeks I learned how to trade with them full time and I’m very happy about that.

    We should let them go on strike and not give them the publicity they crave. They are doing everything they can to disrupt. That said TFL's bargaining strategy is a disgrace.
