Rail Delivery Group comment on the RMT strikes tomorrow, Sunday and Monday
Commenting on the RMT strikes taking place tomorrow (Friday 1 September), Sunday 3 September and Monday 4 September on Northern Rail, Southern Rail and Merseyrail, Paul Plummer, chief executive of the Rail Delivery Group, which brings together train companies and Network Rail to improve the railway, said:
“Britain’s railway connects communities across the country and train companies are doing all they can to keep passengers moving on the day many students return to school or college, and people are going back to work. Right now, rail companies are working hard to upgrade the railway to support passengers and our economy now and for the long term, including 6,400 more services a week by 2021, whilst opportunistic strikes by the RMT leadership seek to disrupt as they did during the Grand National and Tour de Yorkshire.”
