PremierLeague-News.Com - Breaking Sport Transfer News ! This week hundreds of trains across the network are set to be severely disrupted as a rail strike takes place. This is because the RMT has balloted about 40,000 members across Network Rail and 15 train companies for industrial action over pay and terms and conditions. The rail industry wants to work with the RMT to bring how it runs its services up to date, so that it is more reliable, more affordable and inspires more customers back on board. As a result, trains across the country are set to be affected with many cancelled and others with a significantly reduced temporary timetable.
