Thanks to the strength and resolution of TSSA membership in voting for Strike Action, TSSA negotiators won valuable concessions in our negotiations with CalMac and Scottish Government.
But the battle against privatisation and against attacks on YOUR pension goes on
Over recent months the pace of talks held at ACAS has ranged from no dialogue, to talks that moved two steps forward, then one step backwards, to much more constructive dialogue in recent days.
It has taken LU a long time to engage meaningfully with the trades unions, making resolution of the dispute painfully slow, giving rise to frustration amongst everyone involved, TSSA members included.
With immediate effect all action short of strike - including the overtime ban - is suspended. This follows recent progress made during talks at ACAS. All TSSA members at London Underground should therefore undertake their duties as normal.
Following further talks at ACAS, TSSA leader Manuel Cortes said: "I am extremely pleased to say that our Negotiating Team has made sufficient progress to suspend this week's planned strike action on the Tube. However, we are not out of the woods yet. A number of issues need to be resolved before our dispute is finally settled. We will therefore announce future strike dates in due course although we remain hopeful that further talks will soon result in a negotiated settlement".
