Balfour Beatty rail workers to strike over pay

The members of the RMT union have voted to down tools for 48 hours in three separate strikes in March.

RMT General Secretary Mick Lynch said: “These highly skilled workers have had enough of not been offered a decent wage rise.

“The cost-of-living crisis has affected all workers and our members are not prepared to pay the price while the company enjoy huge revenues.

“Balfour Beatty is a highly profitable company and they need to use some of their excess wealth to reward their workers properly.”

A Balfour Beatty spokesperson said: “We remain committed to working closely with the RMT Union to reach an appropriate outcome.

“However, as these discussions remain ongoing, it would be inappropriate to comment further at this time.”
