Strike off

Filed: Thursday, 3rd April 2008
By: Staff Writer

Good news for travelling Hammers fans - the tube strike planned for next week has been cancelled.

The RMA and TSSA announced plans last week to strike between Sunday 6th April and Wednesday 9th, which would have meant misery for thousands of United supporters who would normally use the underground in order to attend West Ham's fixture against Portsmouth.

However the 72-hour walkout was suspended earlier today after thousands of station staff agreed to suspend industrial action.

The Hammers face Portsmouth at the Boleyn Ground next Tuesday night; Pompey are next in action this weekend when they take on West Bromwich Albion in the FA Cup semi-final.
