Issue No. 2229

Rail workers at a First Great Western depot in Cornwall were to strike on Wednesday against the unfair dismissal of colleague Kane Jones.

Members of the RMT union at the Long Rock maintenance depot in Penzance voted massively in support of Kane.

They were to strike between 5 and 6am on Wednesday and refuse overtime until Wednesday of next week.
