RMT General Secretary Mick Cash said:
“RMT members at Unipart Rail Doncaster have been forced to take industrial action following a paltry pay offer for their hard work over the last year.
“All workers in the transport industry should be adequately rewarded for the work that they do. Our members deserve a decent pay rise, especially for the work they have done keeping the company running during the current pandemic.
