Talks aimed at averting strikes by rail workers in a dispute over pay have resumed for a third day after they were adjourned last night.
Members of the Rail, Maritime and Transport (RMT) union at Network Rail are due to walk out for 24 hours from next Thursday evening and 48 hours the following week, threatening travel chaos after a new pay offer was rejected.
The workers, including signallers and maintenance staff, are also planning to ban overtime from June 6-12.
Mick Cash, general secretary of the RMT said it is "fully committed to achieving a negotiated settlement and will be available in London for discussions for the whole weekend and beyond in order to achieve a settlement."
