London Underground tube strike planned for this week now cancelled

A series of Tube strikes planned by the RMT union from Monday 27th June to Friday 1st July have been called off following the reinstatement of Arwyn Thomas by London Underground.

The strikes had been planned following a row over the dismissal of Arwyn Thomas, a driver member of the RMT who had been dismissed for ‘unacceptable behaviour’ towards a colleague.

An Employment Tribunal found that Arwyn Thomas had been ‘unfairly dismissed’ by London Underground.

London Underground have appointed Mr Thomas to a new non-operational role ‘which does not involve customer facing duties’ but ensures Mr Thomas retains his previous salary.

As part of the agreement to end the threatened industrial action, the RMT has agreed to only ballot for strike action in the future if all other options have been exhausted.
