Rail strikes: Fresh talks urged to avoid disruption

BBC News says Rail firms and a major union have both said they want to negotiate to try to avoid strikes that could cause major disruption in June.

The strikes on 21, 23 and 25 June are expected to involve tens of thousands of rail workers.

The RMT union said rail firms had made no “concrete proposals” on pay and job security in discussions so far.

But industry body the Rail Delivery Group said both sides “need to sit down and talk”.

The strikes are expected to affect thousands of rail passengers, and fall during music and sporting events including the Glastonbury Festival and an England cricket test against New Zealand.
