East Coast – Day of Action

Head Office Circular No. NP/027/15/MC

To the Secretary all Branches,
Council of Executive members,
Regional Councils and Regional Offices

Thursday 19th February 2015

Dear Colleagues,

East Coast – Day of Action

The 28th February will be the final day that East Coast is operated in the public sector.
According to the ORR, East Coast is one of just two TOCs which are net contributors to the public purse. In 2013/14 alone, East Coast contributed £23m to the UK government– clearly demonstrating the success of the publicly owned model for East Coast.

There will be activities at the following stations and times in order to oppose the re-privatisation of East Coast and to highlight to contribution the franchise made under public ownership:

Station    Sat 28th February
Kings Cross, London    09.00-10.00
Edinburgh Waverley    08.00-09.00
Doncaster    09.00-10.00

Yours sincerely,


Mick Cash
General Secretary
