Members of the RMT union at Manchester’s local operator Northern Rail are balloting to strike over pay, in a dispute that could hit Christmas services.

The ballot will close on Monday 20 December. Normal services were due to resume after Christmas on 27 December—a bank holiday as is the following day.

Conductors are angry as they will not get extra payments for working the bank holidays, which should apply as Christmas falls on a weekend this year.

The RMT is demanding that workers get double pay.
