Jonathan Lord believes that the current strikes taking place on South Western Railway are completely unnecessary and a disgraceful disruption of services to all those train users who rely on them.
He has written to the relevant parties urging a resumption of talks and an immediate end to the strike.
Jonathan fully supports the pledge in the Conservative Manifesto that we will require that a minimum service operates during transport strikes. Rail workers deserve a fair deal, but it is not fair to let the trade unions undermine the livelihoods of others.
