RMT Press Office:

RMT calls for an end to "legalised larceny" on the tracks as today marks twentieth anniversary of rail privatisation.

General Secretary Mick Cash said

"Today marks two decades of privatisation and the legalised larceny on our railways which has bled billions of pounds away in profits while passengers are condemned to travel in rammed-out, unsafe, clapped-out trains.

"Twenty years of profiteering by greedy private operators has left Britain, the nation that gave the railways to the world, jammed in the slow lane. The only answer is a reversal of the great rail rip-off and a return to public ownership.‎"
