Rail Delivery Group responds to further Aslef strikes
A Rail Delivery Group spokesperson, said:
“The action announced by the Aslef leadership shows a cynical approach to talks, a total disregard for passengers and is putting everyone’s summer plans at risk. This action will bring the total number of strike days on the railway to ten, disrupting plans in June, July and August.
“Like any public service we have to change with the times, and it’s only by making necessary reforms that we can give our people a pay rise.
“Now is not the time for further strikes, so we urge the Aslef leadership to resume talks to reach a deal that is fair to staff and taxpayers, and which secures a better, safer, and more affordable railway.”
