Members of the RMT union were due to walk out from November 3 to 5 as part of a campaign of industrial action in a bitter dispute over changes to the role of conductors. The union announced it had suspended the strike on November 3 after being contacted by the British Legion.

This decision has been made after close consideration and following a personal request from the British Legion. The union recognises the very special importance of that particular day and as a result has decided to suspend the action planned for November 3. The rest of the scheduled action goes ahead as planned.
