Unipart Rail staff take four days strike

29 August 2023

RMT Press Office:

Engineers, clerical staff and production operatives working for Unipart Rail will start a 4-day strike on today.

RMT members are angry that management has been unwilling to improve a derisory 4.75% which the union has flatly rejected.
Despite attempts by union negotiators to recommend a pathway to a resolution, Unipart cancelled a last-ditch meeting, torpedoing any chance of calling strikes off. 
Unipart workers will be on strike in Crewe from:
00:01 hours on Tuesday 29th August 2023 until 23:59 hours on Friday 1st September 2023
RMT general secretary, Mick Lynch said: “Unipart bosses continue to behave in an intransigent manner and have shown a complete disregard for their own staff.
“Our members have rejected a derisory pay offer, but despite attempts by our negotiators to reach a settlement, Unipart bosses cancelled a last-ditch meeting, showing no interest in trying to resolve the dispute.
“RMT remains determined to reach, a negotiated settlement on pay and conditions. And is willing to take more strike action if necessary.”
