Rail workers at London Midland hit back at their penny-pinching bosses last week by refusing to work on Sunday after the company decided to axe double pay.

This led to the cancellation of trains on all but one of the company’s routes.

Bob Crow, the general secretary of the RMT transport union, said, “The workers’ contracts of employment say they haven’t got to work on a Sunday. It’s their choice. They’re not breaking their contracts of employment so what is the big deal?”
