RMT Press Office:
RMT responds to Chris Grayling attack on rail workers pay and news tonight that he is attempting to impose a cap on pay settlements across the industry to protect rail company profits.
RMT General Secretary Mick Cash said;
"If Chris Grayling seriously thinks that front line rail workers are going to pay the price for his gross incompetence and the greed of the private train companies he's got another thing coming.
"This is a basket case Government and a lame duck Transport Secretary continuing it's all out war on staff and passengers alike.
"RMT will fight any attempt to impose a pay cap on our members in a drive to protect private train company profits."
