TSSA & DB Cargo Talks Over Freight Strike Threat

28 March 2019

TSSA General Secretary, Manuel Cortes, has held "constructive talks" with the CEO of DB Cargo, Hans-Georg Werner, to try and avert a damaging strike that will bring UK's rail freight to a halt.

DB Cargo is offloading jobs to haulage company Maritime who are currently refusing to recognise our members’ right to retain their union status when they transfer.

The two sides have agreed to continue discussions over the coming days, but TSSA has been clear with the company – the dispute remains in place.

Cortes said: "Hopefully we can reach an amicable solution to this dispute. I’m pleased to say we had constructive talks this morning during my discussion with Hans-Georg Werner. I am looking forward to developing these talks over the next few days".
