    Damn train strike

    Of all the times to take a strike, they pick a day where I need to take the train to get to the motorshow

    At the moment, getting there should be ok, but stuffed getting home.

    Probably will now. I just wanted to take a train, as it would be a lot easier and no parking fees.

    The bitterness of poor quality is remembered long after the sweetness of low price is forgotten.

    New pay deal averts rail strikes

    Two rail strikes have now been averted after a deal was reached
    Two rail signallers' strikes which threatened to cause chaos for passengers have been called off.
    Network Rail said thousands of signal workers no longer planned to walk out on Friday 21 July, or to stage a 48-hour walkout next week.

    The company and the Rail Maritime and Transport union have agreed on a pay rise and the earlier implementation of a 35-hour working week.

    Union members must vote on the deal in a ballot ending on July 28.


    WOOHOO!!
