More strikes called on Northern, SWR after talks failed More strikes called on Northern, SWR after talks failed

The RMT has called more strikes on Northern and South Western Railway during October, after talks failed to end the disputes over on-train staffing. South Western has clashed with the RMT over the justification for further industrial action. There will now be further strikes on Northern on three Saturdays, while a new 48-hour strike has been called on SWR. The union’s general secretary Mick Cash has accused Northern of ‘intransigence’, while he maintains that South Western has been ’playing with words’.
