Network Rail staff to hold bank holiday strike
Members of RMT union vote by 4-1 in favour for strike action and plan to stage 24-hour walkout in a row over pay
Network Rail has accused the biggest rail union of “holding the travelling public to ransom” by maximising disruption after it announced a 24-hour strike in a row over pay starting on the Whitsun bank holiday Monday.
Members of the Rail, Maritime and Transport Union will walk out from 5pm on Monday 25 May, which will cause most impact on rail travel the following morning. The workers, including signallers and maintenance staff, will also ban overtime for 48 hours on the Monday and Tuesday.
