Bombardier union RMT demands Government intervention over 270 Derby train-building job losses

General Secretary Mick Cash said;

“With a desperate shortage of rail rolling stock in Britain it is criminal that jobs are being axed at the UK’s last train building workshop, Bombardier in Derby.  There is plenty of work for this plant to be doing if the Government had the will to intervene. Contracts for train building are still being shipped overseas, risking the very future of train building in the nation that gave the railways to the world. RMT will be writing to ministers demanding that they step in to end this cull of skilled train building jobs and secure a long term future for the Derby plant.”
