Virgin Trains East Coast workers to stage 24-hour strike next week
Members of RMT union also threatening walkout on 3 October over unresolved dispute about jobs and conditions
Workers on Virgin Trains East Coast will stage a 24-hour strike next week in a row over jobs and conditions, and members of the Rail, Maritime and Transport union will walk out on 3 October.
The union suspended industrial action in the summer, but the dispute remains unresolved. The RMT’s general secretary, Mick Cash, said: “RMT will not sit back while nearly 200 members’ jobs are under threat and while conditions and safety are put at risk by a franchise which is clearly in financial trouble.
