From The Socialist newspaper, 30 June 2000

Signal workers vote for strike

MEMBERS OF the Rail Marine and Transport (RMT) union have voted for strike action against Railtrack over signal workers' pay. The bosses claim they've offered 9% but only 3% of this is new money. 2% is linked to productivity and 4% is incorporation of roster payments.

The railworkers are very angry against the greedy private companies and the Labour government.

This is the third time RMT members have been balloted but the union leaders are still not naming a date for strike action. If the RMT leaders don't begin to reflect railworkers' anger then they could be pushed to one side by a movement of industrial action from below.
