BRITS have been told to get home by 6pm after the union confirmed strikes are going ahead in what will be the biggest walkout in 30 years. Last ditch talks to halt the strikes failed to resolve a dispute over pay, jobs and conditions, according to the RMT union. Mick Lynch said there ‘doesn’t seem to be much evidence’ that further strikes can be avoided. Train strikes could stretch on into the Autumn, a union boss has warned, as the country braces for the biggest industrial action in a generation this week. Mick Lynch, general secretary of the Rail, Maritime and Transport union (RMT), said that unions were not looking to compromise after negotiations with rail bosses failed to make progress over the weekend. A series of strikes at Network Rail and 13 train operators will go ahead on Tuesday, Thursday and next Saturday amid an ongoing dispute over pay and pensions. RMT and Unite workers will also stage a walk-out on the London Underground on Tuesday.
