Liverpool Mayor intervenes over Merseyrail strike Liverpool Mayor intervenes over Merseyrail strike

The RMT has revealed that the Mayor of Liverpool Joe Anderson contacted the union in a bid to resolve the dispute over driver-only operation on Merseyrail’s new fleet. He spoke to general secretary Mick Cash, and has since followed up this conversation with a letter in which he asks that the union cancels the strike it has called for 8 April, which is Grand National day. Strikes on Northern and Southern in DOO disputes have also been called on the same date. RMT general secretary Mick Cash said he now wants face to face talks with the Mayor as a matter of urgency.
