Tube strike negotiations halted by new pay offer

TfL offers Tube Lines workers a 4.2 per cent pay rise

13 July 2010

Strike negotiations between Transport for London (TfL) and transport union RMT have been stopped following a new pay offer.

TfL has offered Tube Lines (TL) workers a 4.2 per cent pay rise and assurances over jobs. Employees will hold a vote on the deal which the RMT has recommended they accept.

The new salary deal means RMT members will call off the proposed 48 hour strike which was due to start tomorrow (July 14th).

RMT was concerned that jobs may be cut following TfL's acquisition of maintenance firm TL.

Bob Crow, general secretary of RMT, claimed the pay offer has highlighted the importance of strong trade union negotiations.

"Once again, RMT members have shown that if you are prepared to stand together and take action in defence of pay, jobs and working conditions you can win," he said.

TfL officials claim the deal has been available prior to the firm's takeover of TL.
