The Rail Delivery Group responds to the latest RMT strike ballot



Responding to the latest ballot by members of the RMT union, Steve Montgomery, Chair of the Rail Delivery Group, said:

“Passengers will be dismayed by this outcome. We recognise the strength of feeling among our people, and call on the RMT leadership to continue to work with us to agree the vital reforms necessary to both afford a fair pay deal, and secure a sustainable future for the railway which is currently taking more than its fair share from the taxpayer.

"Further counterproductive strike action would only heap more misery on our customers and struggling businesses in the run up to Christmas, and continue to undermine the viability of an industry we all want to see thrive.”
