What do RMT and Network Rail have to say on this subject?
RMT Secretary General Lynch me said: “The railway industry and the government must understand that this dispute will not simply go away.
“They must seriously make a salary offer that will help address the cost of living crisis, provide job security for our members and provide good working conditions.
“Current proposals from network rail in terms of payment and safety related to maintenance work.
“And the EVU didn’t even make us a salary offer in the last negotiations.
“Now that Grant Shapps (Secretary for Transport) has given up his desperate hopes of becoming Prime Minister, he can return to his full-time job and help clean up this mess.
“We remain open to talks, but we will continue our campaign until we reach a negotiated settlement.”
“It is clear that the best interests of passengers and our employees are taking second place to the union leaders’ political campaign.”
