A Christmas strike on the London Underground by 1,800 staff working for private infrastructure firm Metronet has been called off by rail union the RMT after the two sides reached an agreement over outsourcing, redundancies and pensions.
Engineers, signallers and maintenance staff had been poised to take action on three of the days in the week leading up to Christmas.
