The RMT union has announced a further two days of strike action on Arriva Rail North.
They will go ahead on Tuesday 3rd October and Thursday 5th October as part of a long-running dispute over plans to introduce driver-only trains.
The RMT claims that the rail company is refusing to reconsider its plans to remove guards form around half of their services, which the union describes as:
'The latest act of gross hypocrisy following the Parsons Green bombing. Northern Rail have called on staff to be extra vigilant, the same safety critical staff that they are now planning to throw off the trains.'
Arriva Rail North has been asked for a statement.
