RMT hails success of strike negotiations

The success of strike negotiations has been hailed by one union.

11 May 2011

The Rail, Maritime and Transport Workers union (RMT) has hailed the success of strike negotiations with London Underground (LU).

It was confirmed by the organisation that strikes, due to take place this month and next, have been suspended after negotiation techniques prevailed in prompting LU to concede to some of its demands.

The transport firm has agreed to re-employ Eamonn Lynch - a driver found to have been unfairly sacked by an employment tribunal - and has agreed to attend further strike negotiations on the status of Arwyn Thomas.

RMT general secretary Bob Crow, commenting on the move, claimed the dispute was only ever concerned with "securing justice" for the union's sacked members.

"I want to pay tribute to the loyalty and determination of our members on London Underground who have continued to stand shoulder to shoulder with their colleagues Eamonn and Arwyn," he said.

Yesterday (May 9th), LU jumped the gun by issuing a statement claiming it had come to an agreement with RMT, which was later denied by a union spokesman.
