Fresh rail strikes announced for 30 May [BBC News]





Date: 16/05/2017

Employees at three rail companies are to stage strikes, the Rail, Maritime and Transport (RMT) union has said. RMT members at Southern Railway, Merseyrail and Northern (Arriva Rail North) will walk out on 30 May. The 24-hour strike is the latest in a bitter dispute over staffing and plans to introduce new driver-operated-only (DOO) trains. It will be the 32nd day of industrial action by Southern workers, who started holding strikes a year ago.
