NSW Rail Workers Vote For 24-Hour Strike

Sydney and NSW rail workers will go on strike for 24 hours after negotiations between the train union and rail management fell through.

The work stoppage will begin at 12.01am on Monday January 29, the Rail, Tram and Bus Union says.

"We're disappointed it's had to come to this, but management and the NSW government haven't left us with any other options," NSW union secretary Alex Claassens said on Tuesday.

The strike is in addition to the ban on overtime that union workers will commence on Thurs 25th January.

The overtime ban is expected to cripple train services across the Australia Day long weekend.
