Next weeks planned industrial action on the tubes could yet be
called off by unions representing Metronet staff. A series of
strikes are due to start on Monday over job losses and
Union leaders will discuss the matter today after London's mayor
Ken Livingstone said he would seek assurances in the matter.
The union's have welcomed Mr Livingstone's commitment but said
they required similar guarantees from both Metronet and the
administrator before calling off the strikes.
