Date: 28/07/2016

A five-day strike on the Southern rail network has been announced by the RMT union in a long-running dispute over the role of guards. Members have staged several walkouts, with the next action set for 8 August. Parent firm Govia Thameslink (GTR) wants to use new trains where the driver operates the doors using CCTV, but the union fears job losses and has raised safety fears about the move.
