  • 22:29 hours on Sunday 13th January and 22:29 hours on Monday 14th January 2019

What did the officials say?

RMT General Secretary Mick Cash said:

“I want to pay tribute to RMT members on the Bakerloo Line whose solidarity and determination has enabled our negotiators to make enough progress in talks to allow the suspension of the Boxing Day strike action.

“In the meantime, strike action scheduled for between 22:29 hours on Sunday 13th January and 22:29 hours on Monday 14th January 2019 remains on until further notice.

“RMT’s executive will continue to monitor the situation and will take whatever future action is required to ensure a positive outcome.”
