Train staff to strike over pay deal

Workers at a train maintenance company, based in Crewe, are to stage a 24-hour strike in a dispute over pay. Members of the Rail, Maritime and Transport union at Arriva TrainCare will walk out later. The RMT said the company was not prepared to negotiate pay because it was not the recognised union for its employees.

The company should wake up and take notice of the anger amongst their workforce over the pay issue.

Instead they have ignored their staff and offered an insulting increase that systematically undermines our members' standard of living.

– RMT general secretary, Mick Cash
