One union has pulled out of the February Tube strike – but it will still go ahead

One of the unions involved in two planned Underground strikes in February have pulled out.

Members of the Transport Salaried Staffs’ Association (TSSA) won’t join the strikes planned for the 5th and 7th.

However, the RMT will still go ahead with the strike. Because the TSSA is the smaller union, the strike will still cause problems.

The general secretary of the TSSA, Manuel Cortes, praised London Underground’s offer of 325 new jobs.

He told the BBC that this will go “some way towards restoring adequate safety on our Tube”.

RMT members will walk out from 6pm on the 5th, and for another 15-hour strike from 10am on 7th February.

“We are available for further discussions this week to provide clarification on the implementation of these proposals,” said London Underground boss Steve Griffiths.
