The National Union of Rail, Maritime and Transport Workers (RMT) has finally accepted pay conditions for the Night Tube, meaning that the 24-hour London Underground service is back on the menu. 84% of its 10,000 members reportedly voted in favour of the offer, which has been described as a “fair deal”.
The Night Tube was originally meant to have launched in early September, but plans were scuppered after staff on the transport network rejected pay offers and work conditions. We’re not quite in the clear, as the Aslef union still needs to get on board with the Night Tube. However, nine out of 10 of its Tube drivers are expected to support the deal when they vote next week.
