He continued: "This is on top of Network Rail failing to make a new proposal at the end of last week." "Our members have shown their commitment to the dispute and to winning workplace justice in the re-ballot results last week and their union is equally determined to see this dispute through until we get a deal our members can support," Mr Lynch added.

A Department of Transport spokesperson said: "Negotiations are between unions and employers and it is incorrect to claim the Government is holding them up. "It's vital such talks continue and all parties work together to avoid more damaging strike action, and prevent further chaos on the railways. The very future of the industry depends on it."
