Industrial action on track at Arriva Rail North

24 July 2018

Industrial action may soon be on track at German government-owned Northern unless management revise their below inflation pay offer. Almost 80% of TSSA members rejected the Company's 3.75% pay offer and now want management to come back to the table with a better deal.

Said TSSA General Secretary, Manuel Cortes,"The ongoing chaos surrounding the timetabling fiasco at Northern has squeezed out the last drops of our members' goodwill.

And this overwhelming rejection of the pay offer is an indication that our members are in no mood to be messed around a moment longer by a penny-pinching management.

Unless Northern now come up with an improved offer, and quickly, then we will ballot our members on industrial action, including strike action."

TSSA will be coordinating any industrial action with sister transport unions, RMT, ASLEF and Unite.
