A strike on the tube that would have seen services begin to wind down early tonight (Sunday 7th January) has been called off.
The RMT announced this afternoon that action is off which would have stopped services over the next working week.
The Mayor has made additional funding available after issues over below-inflation wage rise proposals.
RMT leader Mick Lynch stated: “Following further positive discussions today, the negotiations on a pay deal for our London Underground members can now take place on an improved basis and mandate with significant further funding for a settlement being made available.
“This significantly improved funding position means the scheduled strike action will be suspended with immediate effect and we look forward to getting in to urgent negotiations with TfL in order to develop a suitable agreement and resolution to dispute”.
Drivers union Aslef had previously agreed a pay deal while the RMT objected to a proposed TfL pay offer of five per cent.
Rail companies had warned of extremely busy services if the strike had begun.
