Strike action by hundreds of London Underground workers scheduled for 26 and 28 July has been called off, Unite, the UK’s leading union, said today (Friday).  

The strikes have been cancelled after TfL confirmed that no changes to the pension fund will occur until September 2026 at the earliest. 

Following days of negotiations, TfL also confirmed that any future changes to terms and conditions will only occur through negotiations with the workers’ unions. 

Unite regional officer Simon McCartney said: “This is a welcome development but Unite is clear that only the full protection of all pension benefits past and future will be acceptable. We will continue to be involved at every stage of the pension review and will not take our eye off the process.”
