Bosses admit Night Tube is delayed until 2016 but push ahead with stations attacks

Issue No. 2476

London Underground bosses announced last week that their plans for Night Tube will be delayed until next year, after a reorganisation of stations has finished.

Tube workers successfully fought the imposition of new, worse conditions with two complete shutdowns of the network involving all four Tube workers’ unions.

Bosses insisted that this year’s pay negotiations be linked to talks over Night Tube, which means any pay rise may not happen until next year. 

Unions now need to force bosses to sort out pay negotiations this year.
