A massive strike suspended at the last minute on the London Underground

A strike which promised significant disruption in the London Underground until Thursday was suspended at the last minute at the end of the day on Sunday following “positive discussions” during negotiations on wages, the RMT union announced.

“Following further positive discussions today, negotiations on a pay deal can now proceed on a better basis,” Mick Lynch, general secretary of the RMT (rail, maritime and transport) union, said in a statement. Thus, “the planned strike action is suspended with immediate effect and we look forward to entering into urgent negotiations with Tfl”, the transport operator in the British capital, “to achieve a suitable agreement and resolution of the conflict,” he added.

The strike, which started on Friday for certain categories of staff, was expected to result in significant disruptions or even zero traffic from the end of Sunday until Thursday inclusive.

The Labor mayor of London welcomed this progress on the social network

In the grip of a severe cost of living crisis, the United Kingdom has faced numerous strikes in recent months in many sectors, notably healthcare.
