RAIL UNION RMT said today that conductor members fighting for pay justice on TransPennine Express are standing firm and united again this morning in the latest of a series of strikes. 
This week,  ahe ad of today's fourth wave of strike action by TransPennine Express conductors battling against attacks on pay and enhancements which are eating away the value of their wages, RMT revealed that TPE’s owners have taken out dividends worth £30 million from their rail empire and are awaiting rhe Secretary of State’s permission to pay out a further £33 million.‎ proving they could easily cut their conductors a fair deal. 
General Secretary Mick Lynch said:
"Reports from the ground show that RMT members are solidly supporting the action on TPE this morning yet again in what is a fight for basic pay justice while the company boardroom is awash with cash and those who never have to step out on the railway on a cold Sunday morning are trousering millions. 

“Our members refuse to be treated unfairly and will be continuing with industrial action until the pay discrimination is dealt with. The company need to wake up to that fact and we hope today's latest action will shake them out of their slumber.  

“The union remains available for talks.”
