National RMT union rail strikes – passenger watchdog responds
07 June 2022
Commenting on the announcement of a national three-day strike by the RMT union, Transport Focus chief executive Anthony Smith said:
“Passengers will be disappointed that the rail industry and the RMT have not been able to reach an agreement and strikes have been announced. This means uncertainty for passengers, so it is crucial that all parties get back around the table and resolve this matter without bringing the railway to a standstill.
“It is passengers who suffer most in the event of strikes. Passengers will need plenty of advance information about the strikes and what services will be running to allow them to plan their journeys during this uncertain time.”
