London Underground workers have voted to continue their strike action for another six months as part of their long running dispute over pay and conditions.

The Rail, Maritime and Transport union (RMT) said 95% voted ‘yes’ on a 54% turnout and 52% of all those who were balloted voted ‘yes.’

The union says it will now consider its next steps in the campaign.

General secretary Mick Lynch said: “I congratulate our members on delivering another impressive Yes vote in our campaign on pensions, jobs and working conditions on London Underground.

“Our union will now consider the results and the next steps in this campaign."

On Wednesday, the RMT union announced that rail operators had put forward a deal that could end their industrial action.

The deal included a backdated 2022 pay rise for staff and job security guarantees.

The RMT's dispute with rail companies has been going on for nearly 18 months already, with workers calling for better job security, pay and conditions.
