No Tube Strike

http://news.bbc.co.uk/hi/english/uk/...00/1845416.stm

Quote:
Plans for a series of strikes by London Underground (LU) drivers have been cancelled after unions accepted a pay deal.

Unions said LU agreed to a 5.7% increase to close the 1,600 pay gap between drivers of passenger and engineering trains.

Aslef and the Rail Maritime and Transport (RMT) union confirmed the two 48-hour strikes planned for next week had been called off.
This is certainly good news for those of us that are first-time travelers to London and who were looking forward to "minding the gap." :)

I'm so glad there wasn't a strike. The London Underground is a fantastic transportation system
