General Secretary Mick Cash said; "This crisis management of the Night Tube could have been avoided if LU hadn't chosen to try and railroad through imposed rosters and had stuck to the agreed negotiating framework from the off.
"No one wins from this situation - neither Londoners or tube staff. RMT supports the principle of a Night Tube with properly agreed reward and rosters and the union remains available for further constructive talks.
"RMT is frankly astounded that Boris Johnson has rung his officials from Japan and instructed them to kick the night tube into next year. RMT is seeking further urgent talks at the most senior level to get this process back on track."
