Pay row Tube strikes called off
Friday 11 January 2013
Strikes planned by London Underground drivers over the next few weeks have been called off to allow talks to be held over a pay row.
Members of the Aslef union were to stage 24-hour walkouts a week today and on the following Friday.
The drivers went on strike on Boxing Day in a long-running dispute over bank holiday pay, disrupting Tube services.
A union spokesman said the action had been suspended so that talks could be held to try to reach a resolution.
