RMT announces November rail strike dates

Evesham Editorial 19th Oct, 2022   0

MORE rail strikes over pay and conditions will take place on November 3, 5 and 7 the RMT union has announced.

RMT general secretary Mick Lynch accused Network Rail of “dishonesty” in negotiations.

Network Rail said it had a two year, eight per cent pay increase deal ‘on the table ready to be put to our staff’.

There have been a series of rail strikes in the UK over the past months as unions have clashed with Network Rail, train firms and the government over pay and conditions.




For the latest strikes, the union said Network Rail had reneged on an earlier pay offer and ‘sought to impose job cuts, more unsocial hours and detrimental changes to rosters’.

The RMT has accused Network Rail of performing a U-turn on its pay offer.  Network Rail disputes this, and says it actually made an improved offer by extending the guarantee of no compulsory redundancies by a further year to January 2025.
