Responding to the announcement that today’s strikes on the London Underground have been called off, John Biggs, local Labour London Assembly Member, said:
“This announcement is very welcome and will avoid millions of Londoners facing extreme disruption this week. It is good to see the RMT and TSSA Unions and TfL talking through issues and attempting to resolve this dispute amicably. This goes to show that disputes can be resolved by sitting down and talking, it is a testament to the professionalism of both the Unions and TfL. It’s a real shame that we’ve seen no leadership from Boris on this issue.
