London Tube drivers plan to call off strike in April and May


LONDON (Reuters) – Train drivers on the London Underground have called off strikes planned for April 8 and May 4 in a long-running dispute over working conditions, the ASLEF trade union said on Thursday.

The Associated Society of Locomotive Engineers and Firemen (ASLEF), which represents 96% of train drivers in Britain, said it had received a proposal from London Underground management that “resolves the key issues in our dispute.”

“This is great news for London and we will continue to work constructively with trade unions to avoid disruption and address concerns,” Nick Dent, London Underground’s director of customer operations, said in a statement.

In a separate dispute a planned strike by ASLEF train drivers on Britain’s national rail network will still go ahead on 5, 6 and 8 April.
