20 March 2017

RMT Press Office:

Rail union RMT confirmed today it has written to Arriva Rail North seeking an urgent date for talks in the current dispute over the future role of guards and the extension of Driver Only Operation.

Mick Cash RMT General Secretary said:

“Arriva Rail North have been telling the world through the media that they are up for a meeting with RMT over the current dispute and today we have tried to put the building blocks in place to make those talks happen.

“The ball is now in the company’s court but no one should underestimate RMT’s commitment to negotiating a safe and sustainable future for Northern Rail services that has passenger safety right at the core.”
