RMT Suspends Strike

The Rail, Maritime and Transport Union (RMT) had planned a 24-hour walkout on Southern, Merseyrail and Northern (Arriva Rail North) on 30 May, as mentioned in a recent blog. However, the union's general secretary Mick Cash yesterday said: "Our thoughts and solidarity are with the people of Manchester." 
"In light of the horrific bombing in Manchester last night, and the heightened safety and security alerts on our transport services, RMT's executive has taken the decision to suspend the 24 hours of strike action scheduled for 30th May."
