Southern rail dispute: talks break down without agreement
RMT union accuses firm’s owners, Govia Thameslink, of refusing to stick by assurances about staff levels
Talks aimed at resolving the dispute over the role of guards on Southern railway have broken down without agreement, the Rail, Maritime and Transport union has said.
The talks took place even though a three-day strike, which began on Tuesday, is continuing. Further stoppages are planned in coming weeks.
