TUBE UNION RMT has said that it will be joining last ditch ACAS talks this morning with a view to securing a constructive solution to the dispute over the abolition of the Night Tube driver grade with strike action across London set to start at lunchtime tomorrow.
General Secretary Mick Lynch said:
“We believe that there is a deal to be done which recognises the work-life balance and job security of our members and we are entering the re-convened talks this morning in a positive frame of mind and we take it that LU Management also will be up for a constructive solution to this dispute.
“RMT's executive has been put on standby for any developments emerging from the ACAS talks later today and we will be issuing further updates in due course.”
