From BBC News:
RMT general secretary Bob Crow said they now had the assurances, they had been seeking, in writing from the employer.
However, he warned a 72 hour strike planned for next Monday remained, pending the outcome of further talks.
"The three days of strike action is on next week," he told BBC News 24.
"Our view the deal we have got is the best possible but if these people from Transport for London keep on going round and trying to rubbish us then it's their fault if the strike takes place next week again."
So hang on a second. Next week's strike (including immense grief to millions and the consequent damage to London's economy) will be because Bob doesn't like "being rubbished"?
We don't know what is more ridiculous – a system that allows this to happen, or a union membership that supports it. For fuck's sake.
