Rail workers risk ‘striking themselves out of a job’ says Transport Secretary

North of England Correspondent

The Transport Secretary has warned rail workers that they risk “striking themselves out of a job”.

Grant Shapps urged them not to go ahead with the three days of walk-outs planned for next week.

He said most rail workers were less militant than their union’s leaders who called for strike action over pay, jobs and working conditions.
