LONDON Underground unions have called off a strike this weekend after resolving a dispute over career progression.

Transport unions Aslef and RMT had won near-unanimous support for walkouts in protest at Night Tube drivers being barred from moving into full-time roles.

Drivers are traditionally recruited from the wider Underground workforce. But the new part-timers recruited to drive the overnight services were banned from progressing for at least the first 18 months of the service.

Strikes had been planned for this Saturday.

RMT general secretary Mick Cash said: “I want to congratulate our members for standing firm and delivering a masive vote in favour of strike action.

“It forced London Underground to see sense and stop discriminating against Night Tube drivers over their career progression.”
