Safer Scottish Trains
RMT demands safe and secure Scottish Trains for all.
Our demands for Scotland’s trains:
. Safe and secure for ALL. Fully accessible – for passengers with disabilities or mobility impairments
. Staffed by safety qualified, operationally trained Guards (Conductors)
. That for passenger safety and the safe despatch of trains – Guards should control the train doors – making sure trains are safe to start – drivers should concentrate on driving the train.
. An urgent review of safety and service quality of existing Driver Only Operated trains.
. For safer trains we need safe tracks. There should be no cuts to infrastucture, track workers or rail operation staff.
. Maintain and expand station staffing – we need to make sure our stations are welcoming and light – staffed and safe.
