Station staff play a vital role in helping deliver a safe, secure and accessible railway. But government and train companies are cutting station staff, de-staffing stations and closing tickets offices. This threatens passenger service and safety, especially at a time of rising crime on the railway.
Please sign our petition;
Violent crime and assaults on rail passengers and staff continue to rise. In 2018/19 there was a 16% rise in violent crime on our railways. Despite this, train companies are increasingly attempting to close station ticket offices, cut hours and staffing at stations and increase levels of lone working.
Write to your MP HERE asking them to support the Staff Our Stations (SOS) campaign which opposes these cuts and promotes the benefits of fully staffed stations.
