Strike negotiations reach conclusion

Planned strikes on the London Underground have been postponed.

24 June 2011

Strike negotiations appear to have resolved a dispute after industrial action planned by employees of the London Underground (LU) was postponed.

Workers on the capital's public transport network were set to go on strike next week in protest at the treatment of Arwyn Thomas, a driver on the LU, who claimed he was dismissed from his role by bosses for being involved in trade union activity.

Such action would have caused heavy disruption in London due to events such as the Wimbledon tennis tournament taking place there, but strikes have now been abandoned.

This comes after it emerged earlier this week that Mr Thomas had won an employment tribunal based on unfair dismissal and, in a short statement on its website last night (June 23rd), the Rail Maritime and Transport (RMT) union revealed that "the tube strikes planned for next week are now off".

Mayor of London Boris Johnson commented: "I am delighted that the RMT has called off the strike."
