Southern rail boss and RMT chief to meet in bid to break deadlock
First face-to-face talks between parties in six-month-long dispute to be held as conductors go on second day of 72-hour strike
The first face-to-face talks between the boss of Southern Rail and the leader of the RMT union are to be held on Wednesday in an attempt to resolve the six-month-long dispute.
Conductors on Southern will be on the second day of three consecutive days of action, with a further four 72-hour strikes planned over the autumn. Southern intends to run just more than 60% of its normal timetable.
