September 8 and 10 London Underground strikes halted for night Tube talks


The threat of fresh strikes over plans for an all night Tube service in London has been averted after a union suspended industrial action.

The Rail, Maritime and Transport union suspended planned stoppages on September 8 and 10.

Talks over the long running dispute are continuing after LU delayed the start of the night Tube, which had been due to start on September 12.

An RMT spokesman said: "As the implementation of night Tube has been suspended until we reach agreement and we are continuing discussions and negotiations on all related matters,  RMT has suspended the strike action called for September 8 and 10.

"However we remain in dispute and all industrial action called to not co-operate with night Tube at local level including modelling and trials remains in place.

"If further negotiations prove negative then further industrial action will be called in defence of our agreements and for proper pay for our members."
