RMT update on national rail strike days

25 October 2022

RMT Press Office:

Rail union RMT will take strike action on 5, 7 and 9 of November in a dispute over jobs, conditions and pay.

Network Rail members will be on strike on those days and members working for the train operating companies will take action on 5th of November.
In separate disputes, London Underground and Overground (Arriva Rail London) members will take strike action on November 10.
Having been made aware of Royal British Legion (RBL) Poppy day on November 3rd, RMT NEC has decided to re-arrange strike action for the 9th.
A similar decision was taken during a 2016 dispute where strike action clashed with the RBL event. 
The dispute remains live, and the union will continue its industrial campaign until we reach a negotiated settlement on job security, pay and working conditions.
RMT general secretary Mick Lynch said: "Our focus in this dispute is the rail employers who have yet to make an offer that will create the conditions for a negotiated settlement.
"I call upon the new Prime Minister Rishi Sunak to unshackle the rail industry so they can come to a settlement with RMT.
"We will vigorously pursue our industrial campaign until we achieve a deal."
