Train drivers' union Aslef set to suspend planned Tube strikes

Hurray! Planned Tube strikes by train drivers on the London Underground are set to be suspended after progress has been made in talks over pay and Night Tube disputes.

Aslef’s district organiser, Finn Brennan, said: “I am pleased to say that we have made good progress in talks at Acas today. The negotiating team is now reporting to the Aslef executive committee with a recommendation that the planned industrial action be suspended.

Finn Brennan, Aslef’s district organiser, said: “The determination of our members brought London Underground management back to the table. We have dragged them kicking and screaming into the 21st century with an agreement to deliver modern, flexible working patterns for our members and an above-inflation pay rise. This demonstrates just what strong, progressive trade unions can deliver in Britain today.”

Transport unions planned industrial action on the evening of Tuesday 26 January, Monday 15 February and Wednesday 17 February.

The other unions, RMT and TSSA, are yet to announce their decisions on calling off strikes.

Transport union Unite pulled out of the industrial action last week after talks with Transport for London.
