London Underground and the Rail, Maritime and Transport union have welcomed the decision to suspend a three-day tube strike, which was due to start tonight at 9pm.
I am pleased that Londoners will not have to endure further strike action this week. The only way to resolve this dispute is for the RMT leadership to work with us to shape the future of the Tube in a changing world. It is good that they have committed to doing so alongside the three other unions involved.
We have been able to secure real movement and significant progress on the issues at the heart of this dispute in talks with the Tube management over the bank holiday weekend.
