The RMT Union has confirmed there will be another 24-hour strike on three train services.
Southern Rail, Arriva Trains North and Merseyrail will all walk out on May 30th.
It's the latest in a bitter dispute over staffing and plans to introduce driver only operated trains
When announcing the Southern Rail Strike, Mick Cash, RMT General Secretary, said:
“RMT members on Southern Rail have been fighting for safety and access to rail services for over a year now. We have met with the company but there is a massive gap of over 8000 trains a year that GTR have confirmed will run without an OBS on board. That represents a serious safety and accessibility risk and short of the guarantee of a second safety qualified member of staff on Southern services we have no option but to confirm a further day of strike action.
“It is now down to Southern/GTR, and the contract holders in the Government, to face up to their responsibilities and engage in genuine and serious talks that address our issues.”
