  • RMT calls for summit to break DOO deadlock Five train operators are set to be affected by strikes this week, starting today, but the RMT wants a summit to be held over the vexed question of driver-operated trains. The operators are Greater Anglia, Merseyrail, Northern and South Western Railway, where walkouts are scheduled for today, Wednesday and Friday, while a further strike has been called on Southern for today only. RMT general secretary Mick Cash has insisted that while the strikes are going ahead, the RMT is also ready to resume talks.

That announcement was then reversed and after a day of total Government chaos we now know that Mr Grayling is going nowhere and is remaining at transport.
