Unless there is a major breakthrough this week the strike called by the RMT Union will go ahead next week affecting commuters and thousands of people who use the rail network every day across Sussex. Talks started yesterday (Wed) according to the Guardian.
Things don’t look good as the ticket workers’ union to ballot over co-ordinated train strike for ‘maximum impact’ according to The Argus. This dispute has been a long time in the making and I have taken this opportunity to look back into how we got here and at the same time put some proposals forward to resolve things.
In this article you can see my proposals and a review of the background to the dispute:
- Getting trains back on track! – proposal by the Lib Dems
- Antagonistic ‘megaphone’ statements by rail bosses not helping
- Government Policy
- What are other train operators doing?
- Driver Only Operation & Government Policy
- Ordering Driver Only Trains started in 2008!
- We do we go from here?
- East Sussex ‘Transport Summit’ lacking in substance and action!
- Press updates
