TRADE unionists across Britain must “take a stand and fight for workers,” RMT urged today as it announced another four weeks of national rail strikes in a long-running dispute over jobs and pay.

The transport union said more than 40,000 of its members across Network Rail and 14 train operating companies will down tools during a series of 48-hour strikes in coming weeks.

Tory ministers have called for a resolution to the dispute, but the union said that, despite “every effort made by our negotiators, it is clear that that the government is directly interfering with our attempts to reach a settlement.”
