Tube strike postponed again

LONDON Underground unions on Wednesday again postponed plans for strike action in the long-running dispute over staffing and safety for the planned launch of 24-hour working on the London Underground network at weekends.
The Rail, Maritime and Transport union announced that it would suspend planned stoppages on 8th and 10th September.
Talks over the long running dispute are continuing after LU delayed the start of the Night Tube, which had been due to start on 12th September 12.
 An RMT spokesperson 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 8th and 10th September.
"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.”
