Northern rail: Strikes halted by 'breakthrough' [BBC News]

Date: 06/02/2019

Strikes on Northern rail have been suspended after a 'major breakthrough' in a long-running dispute over plans to axe guards on trains, a union said. Members of the Rail, Maritime and Transport union (RMT) have taken 47 days of industrial action and were due to walk out on the next two Saturdays. Passengers have faced huge disruption since the dispute began two years ago.
