Tube passengers are to be spared a day of disruption after a third union agreed to suspend strike action due to take place on Tuesday.
Services were due to be hit by a 24 hour walkout by members of the Aslef, TSSA and RMT unions who are in dispute with Tube managers over the pay and conditions for staff working on the new night service.
Aslef and the TSSA suspended their planned action following receipt of a revised pay deal and today the RMT also confirmed its members would also work their scheduled shifts on Tuesday.
The revised LU offer consists of:
* 2015; 1% pay rise, backdated to April last year, plus £500 consolidated on all salaries;
* 2016; RPI or 1% whichever the greater;
* 2017; RPI or 1% whichever the greater
* 2018 RPI plus 0.25% or 1% whichever the greater.
* A one-off payment of £500, non-consolidated, to all staff who deliver Night Tube at its launch.
Further strikes are planned for 15th February and 17th February.
General Secretary Mick Cash said: “RMT’s executive has agreed to suspend tomorrow’s action over pay and night tube to allow for further consideration and consultation on the current offer.
“The union makes it clear that we remain in dispute and the strike action scheduled for February remains on.
“RMT also remains in dispute over station staffing and the week of action on that issue, scheduled to begin from the seventh of February, also remains on and the union is finalising the details for the continuation of that industrial campaign and the on-going fight over the threat to jobs, services and safety.”
