RMT members at rail-freight company EWS are to be asked about stepping up their industrial action over jobs, working hours and conditions, after talks with the company at Acas broke down.

1,300 engineering and groundstaff have already held one 48-hour strike over jobs, working hours and conditions.

EWS wants to introduce a new driver restructuring initiative that will involve drivers taking on rolling stock technicians' duties and other work. This will encrouch on the work of groundstaff.
