Rail, Maritime and Transport union (RMT) members are walking out for the third time this week, with little sign of a breakthrough to the deadlocked row. Passengers have been urged to only travel if necessary by beleaguered rail operators with only a fifth of services running and as many as half of lines closed. “What we cannot accept is thousands of railway workers being thrown on the scrapheap after being praised as heroes during Covid. Talks between the RMT and rail employers have been held throughout this week and are expected to resume in the next few days. The Twitter account of the RMT has added more than 60,000 new followers in the past week.
