Southern Rail passengers face months of disruption

The Guardian, 4th January 2017
A six-day strike by drivers on Southern rail next week has been cut to three days, but there will be three further strike days at the end of the month. The general secretary of Aslef, Mick Whelan, said the move did not mean the union was rolling back and warned of further strikes. “We are taking a longer-term view of this trade dispute,” he said. “The company has not been prepared to move – it is simply going through the motions, turning up at Acas, as it did yesterday, and telling us that it intends to impose driver-only operation. It is difficult to negotiate with people who are not prepared to be flexible. We still believe a deal can be done but we are, at the moment, a long way from that position.” Southern’s passengers have suffered months of disruption because of industrial action, staff shortages and other problems.

About thespeedofdark

David Winship has written an unauthorised autobiography and several critically disdained literary tomes. His work is frequently compared with Steinbeck, Orwell and Hemingway, but unfortunately Mike Steinbeck, Daisy Orwell and Howard Hemingway were all terrible writers. He has been totally overlooked for the most prestigious literary awards worldwide, which is a shame as most of the words are spelled correctly. In fact, his books contain material that ranks with the finest literary works in history: all the right letters are there, just not necessarily in the right order.

Dave’s blog (The Speed Of Dark Blog) is part of his crusade for truth and justice and universal entitlement to free real ale. It may well be that his whole purpose in life is to serve as a warning to others.
