Rail Strike to Face Legal Challenge
Network Rail has started a legal bid to halt the planned strikes by railway signallers and maintenance staff belonging to the RMT and TSSA unions. Strikes are due to start from Tuesday next week.
Network Rail are arguing that "scores of discrepancies and inaccuracies" were contained in the signallers' ballot.
The strike centres on Network Rail plans to cut 1,500 jobs and increase evening and weekend maintenance work.
