RMT suspends Piccadilly Line Tube drivers strike action scheduled to start tomorrow
TUBE UNION RMT said today that 24 hours of strike action by drivers on the Piccadilly Line, due to start at noon tomorrow, has been suspended after sufficient progress was made in talks.
Action in separate disputes on the Central Line, starting at midnight goes ahead as planned.
RMT General Secretary Mick Cash said;
“I want to pay tribute to RMT members on the Piccadilly Line whose solidarity and resilience has been the decisive factor in forcing London Underground back to the negotiating table where sufficient progress has been made to allow the scheduled action tomorrow to be suspended.
“The union remains vigilant to any attacks and abuse of policies, procedures and agreements on London Underground and will always take the required action to protect dignity, fairness and justice in the workplace.”
