RMT Northern Rail maintenance driver members in Traincare depots plan to strike for 48 hours over a re-grading exercise. 

Workers at Newcastle’s Heaton depot and Neville Hill in Leeds were due to walk out on Wednesday of this week at 7pm. An overtime ban is set to begin after the strike.

The union argues that the re-grading doesn’t recognise the complex demands of the workers’ jobs. Changes in the industry mean they handle a wider range of vehicles.
