With rail workers set to stage a walkout tomorrow, rail users are being warned to expect delays and disruption to services.
The strike action is set to take place tomorrow, with members of the RMT Union disputing proposals for 'Super Express Trains' by First Great Western that rail workers say would cause loss of jobs and loss of services on-board the trains.
"Despite strenuous efforts by our negotiators we have not been able to secure the kind of progress required in the key areas of jobs, services and safety for us to reach an agreement. As a result we have no option but to put further action on.The fact remains that if it is good enough for East Coast, using the same trains, to meet the very basic assurances sought by this trade union then it is good enough for First Great Western as well."
The latest service information for the proposed RMT strike action on August 23 & 29-31 can be found here - https://t.co/0CnwmNLw0h
First Great Western say they are continuing talks to try and resolve the dispute with the RMT.
"These brand new trains will deliver more seats, faster journey times and more frequent journeys for our passengers. Our plans mean more train managers on board our trains, not less. The key issues remains, that we want the driver to close the doors - which is fundamental to our ability to run the faster, more frequent services customers should expect from a 21st century railway. This method has been used safely across the UK rail industry for decades."
