The RMT show continued support for strike action
Discussions with Network Rail and the Train Operators have continued today. The Train Operators have now made an offer and there is no further offer from Network Rail following the one which was rejected last Friday.
The RMT National Executive Committee has now found both sets of proposals to be unacceptable and it is now confirmed that the strike action scheduled this week will go ahead.
After the government cut £4bn of funding from National Rail and Transport for London, discussions on a settlement have been exacerbated. The rail companies have now proposed pay rates that are under the relevant rates of inflation, coming on top of the pay freezes of the past few years.
The RMT have stated that, “The strikes on Network Rail, the Train Operators and London Underground will go ahead and we again call on our members to stand firm, support the action, mount the pickets and demonstrate their willingness to fight for workplace justice.”
The RMT has also stated that they support the campaign for a square deal for all working people in the face of the cost-of-living crisis, and their current campaign is a part of that more general campaign which means that public services have to be properly funded and all workers properly paid with good conditions.
