Britain’s largest long-distance train operator, CrossCountry, has welcomed the decision by the Rail, Maritime and Transport Workers Union (RMT) to call of their planned strikes on Saturday 19 February and Saturday 5 March.

The union has informed its members at CrossCountry they have withdrawn their dispute regarding Train Managers and Senior Conductors, and they should report for work as normal on these dates.

However, given the lateness of the announcement and the impact on the railway caused by Storm Eunice, passengers wanting to travel on Saturday 19 February should to check their journey carefully before setting out.

CrossCountry’s Managing Director, Tom Joyner, said: “This announcement will be a huge relief to our customers, allowing them to plan their work and leisure journeys on these dates with confidence.

“With this behind us we want to work collaboratively with our unions, colleagues and stakeholders to meet the challenges ahead. There is much to do, and the assurance of a reliable and dependable train service will be the foundation on which we work together to rebuild Britain’s railways.”
