Talks to avoid this week's planned rail strike ongoing

Talks between rail bosses and RMT members to avoid a potential strike this week have resumed this morning.

Members of the union are threatening a 24-hour from 5pm this Thursday and 48 hours the following week after a new pay deal was rejected.

It comes after a 24-hour strike over the May Bank Holiday weekend was called off at the final hour by rail union the TSSA after a pay deal was struck.
