Tube boss: Why wait till Friday for strike talks?

LU managing director Mike Brown said:

Acas have tonight invited LU and the RMT and TSSA unions for talks on our plans for the modernisation of the Tube this Friday.

We welcome further talks, and the unions' decision to return to Acas, but why wait till Friday?

I call on the leaderships of the RMT and TSSA to meet us tomorrow and to suspend Thursday's strike so we can get on with talks to resolve this issue and avoid any more unnecessary disruption to Londoners.
