Rail staff to stage two more strikes

RAIL signal workers in Scotland are to stage two more strikes in a row over career progression. Rail, Maritime and Transport Union members will strike for 24 hours on January 23 and again on January 27. The action follows a three-day Christmas strike. The union is disputing changes to a system where vacant posts were offered to staff.
