RMT urges SWT to negotiate end to rail strike

The
RMT union is urging train operator South West Trains to join it at the
negotiating table in a bid to halt a fourth day of industrial action.

Over
2,100 SWT staff are on the third consecutive working day 24-hour strike over
pay and conditions and over an alleged breach of the disciplinary procedure by
the firm.  

The
strike has meant chaos for customers with nine out of 10 services not running.

"We
are available at all times for further discussions with management on both
issues," said Vernon Hince, acting general secretary at the RMT.
