Planned strikes by London Underground drivers have been called off.

Members of Aslef were due to walk out on Monday April 8 and Saturday May 4.

The union said that after a series of meetings at the conciliation service Acas, its negotiating team has received a proposal that resolves the key issues in the dispute.

“They have also agreed to reinstate annual refresher training stopped during the pandemic.”

Acas director of dispute resolution Kate Nowicki said: “After intense discussions, we are pleased that there is a proposed agreement and that we have been able to make a positive impact. We thank the parties for their hard work and commitment throughout the negotiations.”
