Train Companies respond to union announcement25/03/2010
A spokesperson for the Association of Train Operating Companies said:
“If this strike goes ahead, it would be hugely frustrating for passengers and bad for British business.
“It’s deplorable for the unions to threaten the first national rail strike in 16 years and shows scant regard for the needs of passengers and an economy which is only just emerging from recession.
“But we are hopeful that a resolution can be found that will stop the industrial action and put the passenger first.
“In the event of a strike, train companies would work closely with Network Rail to run as many train services as possible and keep disruption to a minimum.”
