The planned two-day strike across the London Underground has been cancelled at the last minute after unions secured certain concessions.
London Tube workers have decided not to strike on Wednesday and Friday due to disagreements regarding pay and modifications to working conditions.

The RMT leadership stated that the union has successfully safeguarded important positions, averted negative roster alterations, and ensured earnings are protected concerning changes in pay scales.
General Secretary Mick Lynch remarked, “I extend my appreciation to all our members who were ready to strike and our negotiation team for achieving this resolution in our tube disagreement.
“It’s evident that without our members’ solidarity and collective strength, we couldn’t have achieved the advances we did.
“However, we continue to have unresolved concerns about pensions and work terms, and we will keep pushing for a negotiated solution.”
Following the cancellation of the Tube strikes scheduled for Wednesday and Friday, Nick Dent, London Underground’s Director of Customer Operations, commented:
“We’re relieved to see the RMT union retract its proposed strike action for this week, signifying a resolution to our proposed changes at the stations.
This resolution benefits London, and we remain committed to collaborating closely with our trade unions. Our aim is to continually adapt the London Underground to best serve the capital’s needs.
