23 February 2015
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
Please do your best to attend and encourage colleagues, friends and family to join you. More locations may be announced and I will keep you informed.
