A resolution ‘in line with their expectations’ is now being worked out

The Southern Railway dispute has dramatically flared up after members of the drivers’ union rejected a deal aimed at resolving a long-running row over driver-only trains.

Aslef said a proposed resolution to the dispute was rejected by 54.1% in a turnout of 72%.

General secretary Mick Whelan said: “We understand and support the decision arrived at democratically by our members and will now work to deliver a resolution in line with their expectations.”

The Southern dispute has disrupted trains which regularly travel from Ashford International, and Tonbridge Station, causing chaos for many travel commuters.

Having a brand new kitchen is something that lots of people want but can only dream of. Sadly keeping up to date and making our living spaces as nice as they can be is a costly and incredibly stressful business. Even a fresh coat of paint makes all the difference but isn’t easy or quick.

Who wouldn’t love the chance to go on a shopping spree. Imagine being able to walk into a shop and choose whatever your heart desires without having to worry about how much it costs.
