Govia Thameslink Railways has responded to a decision by RMT Union members to strike on September 7th.
The union members have decided to take industrial action in response to planned ticket counter closures.
The strike will coincide with another strike by RMT members working for Southern - a subsidiary of GTR - as part of the ongoing dispute over the role of guards on trains.
Tens of thousands of passengers across the South will be affected by the action of September 7th.
This is a cynical and deliberate stunt by the RMT to try and bring our trains to a standstill by co-ordinating strike action on two fronts on the same day to cause maximum disruption, delay and damage to our passengers’ everyday lives and the economy.
The RMT leadership is playing politics with innocent people who are simply seeking to go about their business with employers, family and friends.
During face-to-face discussions with local union officials from the RMT and TSSA last Monday, we took our original proposals off the table, and agreed new proposals with them - a six months pilot at eight stations using volunteer staff to test the new Station Host role.
It was a very productive meeting and the RMT officials present were content to put the revised pilot proposal forward to the RMT leadership for endorsement. We are therefore perplexed that they have decided to call this strike day in protest at proposals that no longer exist and when a solution had been found.
