RMT Press Office:
Commenting on the decision of Boris Johnston to resign as Prime Minister by October RMT General Secretary Mick Lynch said:
“We are now facing the prospect of months of chaos at the heart of government which could seriously undermine the prospect of a settlement in the national rail dispute.
"RMT is calling for today’s announcement to signal a change of direction from the government on the rail dispute and for ministers to unshackle Network Rail and the train operating companies, so a fair, negotiated settlement can be achieved as soon as possible.”
