Managers vote to join rail strikes

Author: By Alan Jones, Press Association

The Transport Salaried Staffs Association announced that its members at
National Express East Anglia had backed industrial action by three to one.

The managers will join members of the Rail Maritime and Transport union and
Aslef in striking later this month unless the dispute is resolved.

TSSA general secretary Gerry Doherty accused the company of a “high-handed”
management style, adding: “We have had continued problems at East Anglia and
on the East Coast line as the company has tried to drive down costs in its
unsuccessful bid to hang on to the East Coast franchise.

“Our members are now saying they are no longer willing to pay the price for
management failures with any more lost jobs or cuts in their conditions at
work.”

Services in and out of London’s Liverpool Street station were severely
restricted last week when workers went on strike for 48 hours, causing
travel chaos for tens of thousands of commuters.

Talks aimed at resolving the dispute will be held later today.
