CHRIS GRAYLING should make an “urgent intervention” to resolve the long-running Southern rail dispute, rail union RMT said yesterday.
The company has faced a bitter industrial dispute with its staff over the expansion of driver-only trains across its network.
Bosses said RMT had not brought any new proposals to fresh talks on Monday.
But RMT leader Mick Cash accused the company of “deliberately misrepresenting” the union’s position, saying bosses had “knocked back our proposals flat.”
A DfT spokesman said: “We are doing everything we can to resolve the situation on Southern and get passengers the high-quality rail services that they deserve.”
