The National Union of Rail, Maritime & Transport Workers (RMT) has called off planned industrial action which was due to take place at the end of the month.
Members working on Merseyrail, Northern Rail and Southern Rail had planned to walk out on Tuesday 30th May as part of the union’s on-going dispute with Southern Railway.
RMT General Secretary Mick Cash said:
“In light of heightened safety and security alerts on our transport services, RMT’s executive has taken the decision to suspend the 24 hours of strike action scheduled for Tuesday, 30th May.”
The long-running dispute centres on having a second safety-critical member of staff on board every service in addition to the train’s driver.
