RMT members have voted to accept a deal on their pay and working conditions should and all-night Tube service in London go ahead.
The agreement will unblock the dealock that has been preventing the service, which was due to launch in September last year, but three other unions are yet to ballot their own workers.
RMT confirmed that the majority if it’s members voted to accept TFL’s latest offer, described by union bosses today as a “fair deal”.
General secretary of the RMT, Mick Cash, hailed today’s news by paying tribute to the “loyalty, determination and militancy of the workforce right across the Tube network”.
“I want to pay tribute to RMT’s members across London Underground who have stood rock solid throughout the long campaign of industrial pressure to secure a fair deal from the company over pay and night tube operation.
“Those members have now voted to accept the most recent offer from the company – an offer that was only made after the hard work by union reps in the negotiations backed up by the loyalty, determination and militancy of the workforce right across the tube network.”
