General Secretary Mick Cash said;"The news that our sister union TSSA are now balloting for action on First Great Western is yet more evidence that the company are failing wholesale to listen to the serious issues that are being raised by their staff. We also note that TSSA have reinforced the safety issues raised by RMT during the strike action.
"With this latest development, and following on from RMT's rock solid 48 hours of action last week, now is the time for FGW to get back round the table and offer the very basic set of assurances we have been calling for right from the start of this dispute. "
