RAIL passengers are set to experience more rail disturbance as the latest round of rail workers' strikes continues.

Greater Anglia employees represented by the RMT union will walk out in long-running dispute on Friday, June 2.

The union said it found the Rail Delivery Group’s previous offer and associated conditions unacceptable and despite contact between the parties since the strike on May 13, no new proposals have been formulated for the RMT to consider.

The strike will see 20,000 railway workers in catering, train managers and station staff all take action, affecting train services throughout the country.

It means there will be three rail strikes within four days with Aslef train drivers walking out on May 31 and June 3, the day of the FA Cup final.

RMT general secretary Mick Lynch said: "The government is once again not allowing the Rail Delivery Group to make an improved offer that we can consider.

"Therefore, we have to pursue our industrial campaign to win a negotiated settlement on jobs, pay and conditions.

"Ministers cannot just wish this dispute away.

"They underestimate the strength of feeling our members who have just given us a new six-month strike mandate, continue to support the campaign and the action and are determined to see this through until we get an acceptable resolution.

"The government now needs to unlock the RDG and allow them to make an offer that can be put to a referendum of our members."

Meanwhile, an RDG spokesperson blamed the union's leadership for choosing to "prolong this dispute without ever giving their members a chance to have a say on their own offer".
