NR gets all legal on RMT's Ar$e!

Good news for My Learned Friends...

This from Network Rail...

Earlier this afternoon we served papers on the RMT to see them in court tomorrow in a legal challenge on the signallers dispute.

This week we have been having constructive talks with the RMT on the maintenance dispute and hope these continue

A spokesman said:

"Network Rail has a responsibility to all our passengers and freight users, and to the country as a whole, to do everything we can to avert a strike. Talks continue and our aim is a negotiated settlement, but we must explore all avenues at our disposal and that includes legal ones.

"We can confirm that papers have been served on the RMT this afternoon. This calls into question the validity of its ballot amongst our signallers, highlighting scores of discrepancies and inaccuracies.

"We will appear before a High Court judge tomorrow afternoon."

Privs' and status passes to go next?
