LU and RMT disagree on status of strike negotiations
The status of planned tube strikes remains unclear.
London Underground (LU) and the Rail, Maritime and Transport Workers union (RMT) have issued conflicting statements of the status of strike negotiations.
The former party declared union bargaining has resulted in industrial action being called off after it had agreed to re-employ one of the two individuals at the centre of the discrimination dispute and discuss the future of the other.
Mike Brown, managing director for LU claimed that negotiation techniques had prevailed, with RMT agreeing to withdraw the threat of strikes.
However, responding to the claims, a spokesman for the union claimed industrial action is still on the cards.
"We have not received confirmation of any potential offer from London Underground as a consequence of earlier talks," he said.
Earlier in the week RMT general secretary Bob Crow welcomed the decision of a tribunal to rule in favour of activist Eamonn Lynch and urged LU to attend strike negotiations on the issue.
