Talks planned in bid to avert Tube strike in new year

Talks are to be held in a bid to avert a strike by thousands of London Underground workers in the new year over job cuts and ticket office closures.

Members of the Rail, Maritime and Transport union and the Transport Salaried Staffs' Association are due to walk out for 24 hours from the evening of January 8.

Conciliation service Acas said it will host talks next Wednesday between London Underground and the two unions.
