RAIL UNION RMT today issued a fresh call for further talks as members across the length and breadth of South Western Railway are standing firm on the second day of the December strike action in the fight for safe and accessible rail travel for all

RMT general secretary Mick Cash said:

“Our members are solidly supporting the second day of this phase of strike action and are standing firm the length and breadth of the franchise in defence of the role of the guard, accessibility and the safest method of train despatch and operation.

“It is frankly ludicrous for the company to simply jam their heads in the sand rather than getting back round the table to get the same deal back on track that they pulled away from at the last minute in earlier negotiations.

“A deal is there to be done which would cost the company nothing and which would give the safety and accessibility guarantees at the platform/train interface that we have been seeking. SWR need to get out of the bunker and get back into talks.”

Ends.
