Planned Tube Strikes will no longer be taking place this week.ย 

The strikes on the London Underground were expected to see more than 3,000 workers on the service take action.

However, now the Rail, Maritime and Transport (RMT) have confirmed that the Tube strikes are suspended.ย 

It follows news that RMT negotiators were able to make "significant progress" with the London Underground Limited (LUL) representative.

Tube Strikes in October called off

The strikes on the Tube were set to create mass disruption on Wednesday 4 and Friday 6.ย 

Sharing news of the suspension, RMT said they were able to "save key jobs, prevent detrimental changes to rosters and secure protection of earnings around grading changes."

Whilst there has been key progress, the union did add that there are "wider negotiations to be had in the job" concerning pensions.

Speaking of the Tube strike suspension, RMT general secretary Mick Lynch said: "I congratulate all our members who were prepared to take strike action and our negotiations team for securing this victory in our tube dispute.

"Without the unity and industrial power of our members, there is no way we would have been able to make the progress we have.

"We still remain in dispute over outstanding issues around pensions and working agreements and will continue to pursue a negotiated settlement."
