RMT Press Office:
RMT latest 48 hour strike action this weekend on Arriva Cross Country rock solid this morning
RMT General Secretary Mick Cash said:
“It is disgraceful that the management at Arriva continue to refuse to take the issues at the heart of this dispute seriously. It is the companies ineptitude and arrogance that has forced us to take a further round of action this weekend.
“Our members are standing up for the principles of a decent work life balance and against the abuse of rostering and Sunday working by a management that is out of control.
“The action is rock solid across the franchise from Penzance to Aberdeen today and the disruption to services is solely down to Arriva management's intransigence. RMT remains available for serious and genuine talks.”
