Arriva Trains Wales conductors have voted to take industrial action between 12.00 (midday) on Friday 10th October 2014 until 11.59 hours on Saturday 11th October 2014

Conductors working out of three key depots are to take strike action next week over the victimisation and dismissal of two union members through an outright abuse by the company of the sickness absence policy.

Following the vote in favour of taking strike action, RMT’s executive has taken the decision to call on all our ATW Conductor members at Holyhead, Chester and Llandudno Junction Depots to take the following industrial action:
 
RMT General Secretary Mick Cash said ;
 
“This strike action has been caused wholly by the dismissal and victimisation of two RMT members following management’s failure to abide by the agreed procedures. They have deliberately chosen not to exercise discretion but have instead opted to take the hard line approach of dismissal, it is that action that has resulted in a total breakdown in industrial relations.
