Rail strike disrupts passengers

jeudi 30 juillet 2009

Thousands of rail passengers face disruption for the next 48 hours as National Express East Anglia workers go on strike over pay and conditions.

Trains in Cambridgeshire, Norfolk, Suffolk and Essex will be affected, including routes into London and Stansted airport.

National Express warned it would only be able to run limited services and no replacement buses are available.

The strike is by the Rail Maritime and Transport (RMT) and Aslef unions.

A further three strikes are planned for next month.

RMT general secretary Bob Crow said he didn’t want to disrupt passengers - but he felt they had no choice.

He said : "Our job only exists because we’ve got the public using trains. But criticism must be put in the management’s way because they haven’t taken us seriously at all.

"And if they’d got around the table in the last couple of days we could have resolved this."
