Well that went well or not depending on your point of view, hopefully it was enough to give management reason to return to the negotiations with a little less macho posturing and a lot more willingness to find a compromise solution that addresses our grievances. One thing I did find interesting was Boris saying “I am not as hug up on the date. We’ll get it done this Autumn” when asked about the future of Night Tube. Being an eternal optimist that suggests to me that Plan A - impose Night Tube without consulting the staff - has been discarded and Plan B - take the time to talk to the staff about how to make it happen - is now in effect. It probably means nothing of the sort but I can hope.
