It's now been over two months since the proposed launch date for the night tube got pushed from September 12 to, er, an unspecified date sometime in the future. The 24-hour weekend service has been delayed because of unresolved disputes between TfL staff and London Underground. We've totally given up hope of it launching this year (or even this decade), but now London Underground has proposed a solution that might finally put the negotiations to bed. The LU's new deal includes hiring around 140 part-time staff to cover shifts, a salary increase and a £500 bonus. The RMT, Aslef and TSSA unions are currently considering the offer.
