National rail strikes – watchdog response
25 May 2022
Last night the RMT union announced that its members have balloted for strike action.
Mike Hewitson, head of policy at the independent watchdog Transport Focus, said:
“Passengers will be disappointed that the rail industry and the RMT have not been able to reach an agreement. They now face significant disruption to their journeys. It’s crucial that all parties get back around the table and resolve this matter without bringing services to a standstill.”
