Southern rail strikes suspended as two sides agree to TUC talks
Union members had planned three-day walkout next week that would have brought Southern’s services to a halt
The train drivers’ union is to suspend industrial action on Southern rail ahead of fresh talks aimed at resolving a bitter dispute with management over driver-only trains.
The two sides will meet on Wednesday under the joint chairmanship of the TUC general secretary, Frances O’Grady, and the HR director of the rail firm Abellio, Andy Meadows.
