RMT Assistant General Secretary Mick Lynch said:
"The news that Upper Crust, major caterers on Britain's railway stations, have announced savage job cuts shows that support services across the rail industry are facing a real crisis in the months ahead which will hammer both the workforce and those who rely on their facilities if the Government don't intervene as the lockdown eases. Our railway stations are in danger of ending up as ghost towns as we emerge from the pandemic.
"Every member of the rail workforce from caterers to cleaners and those who operate trains and track is important to our future success and RMT will be demanding of the Government that no one is left behind."
