Cash help for strikers.

RAIL union chiefs have denied planning an all-out strike on First North Western trains after introducing a weekly levy to support striking drivers.

Aslef will ask all its drivers not connected with First North Western to pay pounds 5 a week towards a hardship fund for the strikers. The union has donated pounds 10,000.

Drivers are staging a series of 48-hour weekend stoppages and refusing to work rest days during the week as part of their pay row.

Merseyside Aslef officer Colin Smith denied the levy of 17,000 members is to fund an all-out strike. He said: ``There are no such plans at present.''
