Arriva Trains Walesby Tim Lezard

Conductors on Arriva Trains Wales today begin a two-day strike over the victimisation and dismissal of two RMT members.

The action affects staff at Holyhead, Chester and Llandudno Junction depots.

RMT general secretary Mick Cash said: “This strike action has been caused wholly by the dismissal and victimisation of two RMT members following management’s failure to abide by the agreed procedures. They have deliberately chosen not to exercise discretion but have instead opted to take the hard line approach of dismissal, it is that action that has resulted in a total breakdown in industrial relations.

“RMT is in no doubt that our remembers will support the action and their victimised colleagues.”
