Southern rail dispute: Thursday and Friday strikes called off
Decision to suspend industrial action is to allow fresh talks in row over the role of conductors, Acas says
Strikes by Southern railway workers on Thursday and Friday have been called off to allow fresh talks in the row over the role of conductors, Acas said.
The development came after the chief executive of Southern trains stepped up his attacks on the RMT union, accusing it of repeatedly misleading the staff it represents. The union had in turn accused Southern of making “a mockery of the negotiation process” and of having no intention of resolving the dispute.
