Transport Focus response to planned industrial action

01 June 2015

Responding to news that the RMT union has announced that a strike of Network Rail signallers and maintenance workers is still possible, David Sidebottom, passenger director of the independent watchdog Transport Focus, said:

“Passengers will be disappointed by news that Network Rail and the RMT have not been able to reach an agreement and strikes are once again on the horizon.  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.”
