RMT 'still has confidence' over strikes

A planned four day national rail strike has been called off after it was challenged in the High Court.

Network Rail was granted an injunction after it alleged discrepancies in the National Union of Rail, Maritime and Transport Workers (RMT's) ballot for industrial action.

The first ballot of British Airways cabin crew at Christmas was also postponed due to successful court action.

Alex Bryson of the National Institute of Social and Economic Research, analyses whether employers are increasingly looking to the courts to avert strikes.
