Eurostar staff at London St Pancras and train managers to strike -RMT union

LONDON (Reuters) - Eurostar staff based at London’s St Pancras station and train managers will strike for 48 hours over working conditions on Sunday Sept. 30 and Monday Oct. 1, the RMT union said.

“The conditions at St Pancras have been simply appalling over the summer with dangerous levels of overcrowding on the concourse as services plunge into meltdown on the cusp of the busiest part of the year,” said RMT General Secretary Mick Cash.

Cash said in a statement on Thursday that the union was open to genuine and serious talks with the company.

There was no immediate response from Eurostar.
