RMT station staff strike suspended

Date: 01 Sep 2016

The RMT union has announced that the station staff strike planned for Wednesday 7th September has been suspended. Southern has issued the following statement:

A Southern spokesperson said:

"We are pleased for our passengers that the RMT has called off its planned station staff strike and we look forward to working together to deliver a better railway for everyone.

"While it is good news that this dispute has been suspended, we are disappointed that the dispute with the RMT over changes to the role of Southern conductors remains.

"With two further strikes planned for Wednesday and Thursday next week this means, if the strikes go ahead, on these days we will be operating a contingency strike timetable and passengers are advised to check our website for details."
