RMT reinforces message to the public that NR dispute is about the staffing and safety of our railways as talks continue

General Secretary Mick Cash said. "RMT is continuing to push for a negotiated settlement through the ACAS talks ?and the union is available right the way through the weekend to keep that process going if necessary.

"In the meantime our picketing arrangements are in place and the response coming back from our members is one of rock solid support.

"We would remind the public that we have been forced into this dispute through a wholly unwarranted attack on safety-critical jobs, pay and working conditions that would seriously undermine the safety of passengers on our railways into the future.

"RMT members are standing up for the principle of a properly staffed and resourced railway where safety comes first and where corners aren't cut to hit budget targets."
