Talks continue to identity additional staffing needs

Talks are continuing as part of seven day review of staffing level. We've outlined need for more staff to meet key objectives: Staff in control rooms, safety and security in larger stations, reduce lone working and unstaffed local stations, improve roster balance.
LU have again stated that additional jobs can be created to meet these objectives. They will respond more fully on Friday.
