A TRUECE has been called between train operators First Capital Connect (FCC) and the Rail, Maritime and Transport Workers' union (RMT), meaning a strike planned for Monday has been cancelled.
A 24-hour walk out by RMT workers had been due to cause disruption to commuters in Times Territory at the beginning of next week, with services to Finsbury Park and Moorgate through WGC, Hatfield and Potters Bar set to have been cancelled.
The strike had been organised following the sacking of an RMT member, over an altercation with a train passenger.
But following talks between FCC and the RMT, the industrial action has been called off.

An FCC spokesman said: "We have reached a mutually satisfactory agreement with the RMT union over the dismissal of a member of staff. Consequently the strike action called by the RMT for Monday will not take place.
"We will be operating a normal service on this day," he added.
