RMT Press Office:
RMT General Secretary Mick Cash said; "RMT members on Southern stand solid, determined and united again this morning on the second day of this phase of strike action.
"Our message that rail safety and access to transport services has to be put before the profits of Govia Thameslink is ringing out loud and clear.
"The union thanks the travelling public for their understanding and support as we stand up against this failing and greedy rail operator in defence of the safety of passengers and staff alike.
"Southern is a train operator that has chosen to declare war on both fare-payers and the workforce. Our message to rail users across the Southern network is clear - our fight is your fight. "
