Northern issues response to RMT's decision to strike on 9th May

25 April 2018
Richard Allan, Northern’s Deputy Managing Director, said: “Our modernisation plans are well underway with almost £500m of new trains under construction, 90 refurbished trains in service, £8m spent so far on improving our stations, extra services from May, and much more to come by 2020.

“We urge RMT to move away from its nationally co-ordinated campaign and allow its local representatives to engage in meaningful discussions with us on how we better serve customers on-board.

“We are still prepared to offer unprecedented guarantees of jobs and pay reviews until the end of our franchise in 2025, with the Government guaranteeing jobs beyond that, but both guarantees depend on RMT ending its strike action.”
