Watchdog responds to new RMT strikes dates
23 November 2022
Responding to the announcement of further RMT strikes in the run-up to Christmas, Transport Focus director David Sidebottom, said:
“It is passengers who suffer most in the event of strikes and they will be disappointed that the rail industry and the RMT have not reached an agreement.
“This is being dumped on passengers who may have to cancel plans or endure miserable journeys. This dispute has dragged on for far too long and is damaging long term trust in the railway.
“It is crucial that all parties get back around the table and resolve this matter without bringing the railway to a standstill in the build up to the festive period.”
