LONDON -Britain’s RMT Union said on Monday that it would go ahead with planned railway strikes after talks with train operators failed to resolve a dispute over pay, jobs and conditions.

Talking about the proposals, the union’s director-general Mick Lynch told a news conferece: “The Network Rail one was rejected on Friday, and the train operating company one which was only put to us today has been rejected this afternoon.”

“Both sets of proposals are unacceptable and is now confirmed that the strike action that is planned for this week will go ahead.”
