LU officials set to hold strike negotiations with RMT union
London Underground and RMT union aim to resolve job cuts dispute
London Underground (LU) officials are set to hold strike negotiations with union bosses in a bid to resolve a long-running dispute over job cuts.
Representatives from the Rail Maritime and Transport (RMT) union have agreed to hold fresh talks but the Transport Salaried Staffs' Association (TSSA) has confirmed that it will not be joining them.
Staff are unhappy over LU's plan to cut 800 ticket office jobs and have already held three 24-hour walkouts over the past three months.
Further industrial action is set to take place on 28th November, but union officials have claimed that they will not strike over the Christmas period.
Gerry Doherty of the Transport Salaried Staffs Association said: "It will not be my intention to disrupt festivities.
"I will not be recommending to my members that they strike over Christmas and the new year."
The TSSA has announced that they will not join talks until it has consulted its members over planned additional job cuts.
