RMT Press Office:
General Secretary Mick Cash said;
RMT can confirm the receipt of a formal legal challenge from Southern Rail in the guards safety dispute. It is appaling that rather than sitting down with us at ACAS today to seek a resolution the company have chosen to run to the courts under the cloak of the anti-union laws. The union intends to continue with the planned action and is examining the details of the paperwork. We will issue a further statement in due course.
