Northern rail workers to strike over plans to abolish train guards
RMT union members to stage three walkouts in June amid ongoing chaos caused by timetable change
Workers employed by crisis-stricken Northern rail are to stage three strikes later this month as their union capitalises on recent travel chaos to fight plans to abolish train guards.
All Northern conductors, conductor instructors and train driver members of the National Union of Rail, Maritime and Transport Workers (RMT) have been instructed to strike for 24 hours on Tuesday 19 June, Thursday 21 June and Saturday 23 June. The strikes will begin at one minute past midnight and run until 23.59 each day.
