The article reports that RMT is facing an escalating strike action for a total of 12,000 infrastructure maintenance workers in Great Britain. RMT Secretary Bob Crow said that after hours of talks, the negotiating team thought enough progress had been made to recommend suspension of the strike. It is quite clear that the agenda who blocked progress made is driven by the desire to use the harmonisation talks to impose budget cuts at the members' expense, he added.
