RMT rebuts FGW claims that they are running a 60% normal service.
General Secretary Mick Cash said;
"These figures are pure fiction. The company have been forced into wholesale shutdowns , with a manager-run skeleton service in some areas , due to the strike action as passengers will confirm. It does no one any favours driving more people onto dangerously overcowded trains.
The solution to this dispute isn't manufactured figures and PR stunts it is serious talks addressing the core issues that have forced our members to strike. "
