Further strike action announced in September by RMT

R

ail passengers face further misery after the RMT announced a fresh set of strikes set to shut down the transport network.

More than 40,000 union members from Network Rail and 14 train operators will walk out on September 15 and 1 in a long-running dispute over pay, jobs and conditions.

In separate disputes, Hull Trains and Arriva Rail London will also be taking one day of strike action on the 15th of September.

RMT general secretary Mick Lynch said: “Our members have no choice but to continue this strike action.“Network Rail and the train operating companies have shown little interest this past few weeks in offering our members anything new in order for us to be able to come to a negotiated settlement.

“Grant Shapps continues his dereliction of duty by staying in his bunker and shackling the rail industry from making a deal with us.

“We will continue to negotiate in good faith, but the employers and government need to understand our industrial campaign will continue for as long as it takes.”
