RMT members standing firm again this morning on third day of action in fight for workplace justice on East Midlands Trains

RAIL UNION RMT said that members on East Midlands Trains are standing firm again this morning on a third day of industrial action as  Stagecoach attack pay and working conditions before the Government ban them from the railways in the wake of the pensions row. 
General Secretary Mick Cash said;
"Our members are standing firm on their picket lines on this third day of strike action on East Midlands Trains this morning in the fight for pay and workplace justice. I want to pay tribute to the resilience of the RMT EMT members whose refusal to be bullied into submission is a lesson to us all. 
"The disruption to services is solely down to the slash and burn tactics of Stagecoach as they run their franchises down before they are booted off the railway. It is the company's hostile attitude to their staff that has forced us to strike again today and put a further day of action on in a fortnight's time. 
"RMT remains available for talks but we know when we are being strung along and I repeat the call for the company to stop playing games, cut the excuses and get back round the tableā€Ž."
