Solid support from RMT members as they continue to strike against Northern Rail's intention to reclassify and downgrade their established positions.
General Secretary Mick Cash said:
"RMT pledges full solidarity with our Northern Rail customer relations members in Leeds today as they strike to defend their grade and their working conditions.
"The determination and anger of our members, which is on display today, should force the company to start taking the issues in dispute seriously and to get back into meaningful talks. "
