Tube union RMT confirmed today that it will be attending talks at ACAS this morning in the long-running dispute on the Piccadilly Line over the breakdown of industrial relations and a comprehensive failure by management to deliver on promised improvements following previous rounds of industrial action.

Strike action scheduled to start at lunchtime Wednesday and running on a phased basis through to Saturday remains on.

RMT General Secretary Mick Cash said;

"This dispute is about a comprehensive breakdown in industrial relations over a series of long-running unresolved grievances‎ including the abuse of procedures and and failure to implement key safety and operational improvements agreed in the past with the union.

"RMT will be attending the talks this morning looking for serious progress. Our arrangements for the strike action starting Wednesday are‎ all in place and the ball is firmly in London Underground's court."
