RAIL strikes saw 80% of train services cancelled yesterday – but commuters are set for more CHAOS due to a lack of overnight staff.
Half the rail network shut down on Tuesday – with further strikes taking place Thursday and Saturday in the biggest walkout in 30 years, the RMT confirmed.
And despite strikes not taking place today, the Tube is set to be delayed by FOUR hours.
The chaos will continue on Wednesday, with only 60% of trains running, mainly due to a delay to the start of services as signallers and control room staff are not doing overnight shifts.
The RMT will meet with NR and the train companies on Wednesday in another attempt to break the deadlock.
RMT general secretary Mick Lynch said the turnout at picket lines on Tuesday was “fantastic” and had exceeded expectations in the union’s campaign for job security, defending conditions and a decent pay rise.
