Cotswold MP urges RMT rail strike resolution

The MP for the Cotswolds has urged both sides to work together to bring about a solution to the ongoing rail strikes.

The country was brought to a halt last week as around 40,000 members of the Maritime and Transport (RMT) union at Network Rail and 13 train operators walked out on Tuesday and Thursday.

The third day of strike action was planned for Saturday, June 25, with only a fifth of all services expected to run.

Sir Geoffrey Clifton-Brown is hoping that a solution will be found soon.

He said: “I would urge all sides of the negotiations to keep talking and to try and find a settlement that is fair to the taxpayer.

“This strike is inconveniencing millions, many of whom are paid substantially less than those who are striking for more pay.

“Everyone is entitled to a pay rise but it is right that the Government is urging restraint in light of the economic challenges facing this country.”
