RMT calls for further talks to avert Southern rail strike
Union leader Mick Cash says rail company owner GTR turned down offer of Acas meeting but ‘offer still stands’
The union at the centre of the bitter Southern railway dispute has called for last-ditch talks to try to avert a three-day strike this week.
Members of the Rail, Maritime and Transport (RMT) union will take action from Tuesday in the long-running row over the role of conductors. Talks aimed at breaking the deadlock collapsed on Thursday but the union has suggested making one more attempt to reach a deal, at the conciliation service Acas on Monday.
