Tube Strikes: January Strikes Suspend- RMT Union Confirm

Planned strikes on the London Underground have now been suspended.

It comes as the Rail, Maritime and Transport Union confirmed that the Tube strikes would be suspended following talks with Transport for London (TfL).

The planned action was set to take place from the evening of January 7 until Thursday, January 12 and were in protest at a 5% pay offer.

But now the strikes on the Tubes will no longer go ahead following progress in discussions between the RMT and TfL.
