LU welcomes suspension of strike action
Responding to the announcement that the ASLEF leadership has suspended Wednesday's planned industrial action on the Central and Waterloo & City lines, London Underground's Chief Operating Officer Phil Hufton said:
'I am pleased that we have been able to conclude the issues raised by ASLEF which means that strike action will be suspended on Wednesday 17 September. This dispute is over a number of local concerns, all of which have either been resolved or are issues we have committed to addressing. This approach clearly demonstrates what can be achieved when all parties are committed to engaging in constructive discussions.'
