Rail Strike - back on!

28 May 2015

train Just when you thought the rail strikes were off, turns out that it wasn't a decision that was to last forever, as there's another strike afoot!

RMT union members at Network Rail are going to go on strike next month after rejecting the latest pay offer.

They're going to hold a 24-hour strike from 17:00 BST on 4 June and a 48-hour strike from 17:00 BST on 9 June, so update your calendars accordingly.

Basically, staff didn't walk out last week after a new deal was offered by Network Rail, but the union's executive suspended strike action while they looked at what was being offered.

Now they've looked at what has been tabled, union reps met up today and, after discussions, the offer was rejected, which leads to this fresh batch of announcements of strikes. This, of course, means more disruption for commuters.
