Fresh attempt to end Southern rail strike fails to stop latest walkout
Second three-day strike will begin at midnight after RMT rejected rail firm’s offer to restore a £2,000 incentive for staff
A fresh attempt to break the deadlock in the Southern rail dispute has failed to stop the second three-day walkout in consecutive weeks, with conductors taking strike action from midnight.
Southern’s operator, Govia Thameslink Railway (GTR), said it would restore a £2,000 incentive for staff if controversial new onboard supervisor roles were accepted, and urged the RMT to ballot its members on the offer.
