RMT General Secretary Mick Lynch said;
"Travel disruption over the break could have been avoided if the rail companies we are involved in disputes with valued their staff and took their genuine grievances seriously. Any impact on services is down to private greed overriding the workforce concerns.
"The added problem of COVID absences proves that the railway runs at its limits on staffing levels and should mean an immediate halt to threatened staff cuts in the New Year. "
