The rail business says these national-scale strikes value them up to £30 million every day.
And 3 weeks on from the previous national-scale RMT strike, resolutions to the continuing disputes do not seem abundant nearer.
One cohort of managers who are within the TSSA have come back to associate agreement with Network Rail – however different teams within the union haven’t reached deals with their employers.
Last month the RMT rejected Network’s Rail’s latest pay provide – despite their insistence that the union ought to place it to their members initial.
Talks since then haven’t made associate agreement to stop these latest walkouts going ahead.
When it involves the train corporations, even less progress has been created.
Unions have repeatedly defendant the govt of not enabling effective negotiations, however the transport secretary has insisted solely employers and unions will settle their disputes.
