Responding to Sir Keir’s decision to sack him, Mr Tarry said he was “proud” to have stood shoulder to shoulder with those on strike.
He said in a statement: “It has been a privilege to serve on Labour’s frontbench for the past two years and to have had the opportunity to speak up for hard-pressed workers who deserve so much better than the treatment they’ve received from this corrupt and out-of-touch Government.
“I remain committed to supporting the striking rail workers, and campaigning for a Labour victory at the next general election, which I will fight for relentlessly from the backbenches.”
He added: “This dispute would not be taking place under a Labour government, which would ensure that rail workers receive a fair wage.”
