Virgin Trains West Coast strike called off

Virgin Trains says planned strikes by the RMT and TSSA unions on Virgin Trains West Coast have been called off. Virgin advised customers to check the timetable before travelling. "We'll do everything we can to run a full service on Friday, but because the strike has been called off at the last minute there may be some cancellations," said Phil Whittingham, managing director for Virgin Trains on the west coast. The strike was over pay, with the RMT seeking a "Suitable and equal" pay offer for train managers and on-board catering workers on the West Coast route from Glasgow to Euston to that given to drivers. TSSA general secretary Manuel Cortes said: "I am pleased Virgin has finally seen sense, come back to the negotiating table, and made an offer sparing our passengers further disruption at... Christmas."
