Arriva Trains aims to halt strike action
Arriva Trains Wales might seek an injunction to halt strike action by its drivers.
Arriva Trains Wales might be in need of negotiation strategies as it puts plans to halt a planned strike by its drivers on the day of the England vs Wales Six Nations match in Cardiff.
It is seeking a court injunction to prevent the industrial action, but union bosses remain confident in the legality of the walkout set to occur next Friday, reports the Western Mail.
Brendan Kelly, union RMT's regional organiser, said he was sure the strike was legal and said the date of the action had been carefully chosen to force Arriva to reach a settlement.
However, Peter Leppard, safety and operations director for Arriva, questioned the legality of some elements of the strike, commenting: "You might find that we go to court shortly. Our lawyers are looking at an injunction."
This comes after successful negotiation strategies led to the calling off of a planned strike by Great Western Ambulance Service staff and the continuation of union bargaining talks instead.
