New Year - Same Train Chaos

New Year - Same Train Chaos
Jan 8
2018
👤 by Brian Shillibeer

Rail, Maritime and Transport Union members on Northern, Merseyrail, Greater Anglia, South Western Railways and Island Line have been instructed to take action as follows:

  • Not to book on for any shifts between 00.01 hours and 23.59 hours on the 8th, 10th and 12th January 2018

Members on Southern have been instructed to take action as follows:

  • Not to book on for any shifts between 00.01 hours and 23.59 hours on the 8th January 2018

Having written to the current Transport Secretary (Chris Grayling) last week, RMT leader Mick Cash has also written an open letter to a new Transport Secretary who may be announced today as part of PM Teresa May’s cabinet shake up.

In the letter he asked for an urgent meeting with a view to putting to an end these long running disputes, as has been the case in Scotland and Wales.

The RMT claims its first day of strike action in 2018 has held solid.
