Arriva Trains WalesRMT members working for Arriva Trains Wales are to strike for 48 hours next week over pay.

They will take action between midnight on November 12th and 14th.

RMT general secretary Mick Cash said: “RMT officials have made every effort to resolve this dispute through negotiation, even postponing previous action in good faith so that management could return to the table with a serious offer. They have point blank refused to do that and, therefore, we have been left with no alternative other than to reinstate the strike action.

“Our members on Arriva Trains Wales are furious over this management intransigence which has left us with no option but to send a message that the union will refuse to stand by and allow them to be treated with such utter contempt over these important issues.

“As ever, RMT remains available for further meaningful talks”.
