Network Rail challenges union's bank holiday strike ballot
Group asks TSSA union representing white-collar staff to withdraw notice of industrial action, pointing to ‘numerous defects’ in its ballot
Network Rail is threatening legal action to partially head off next week’s national rail strike, claiming “defects” in one union strike ballot.
The track operator has asked the TSSA rail union, which represents a minority of its employees, to withdraw its notice of industrial action or face legal action. The union has yet to respond formally but a spokesman described the move as “shambolic” and said it had not been served with any legal papers.
