RMT calls for GTR to be stripped of franchise as Horton goes

15 June 2018

RMT Press Office:

General Secretary Mick Cash said;

"For well over two years now RMT members fighting to defend safety and access have been subjected to abuse and hostility under the regime led by Charles Horton.

"Mr Horton may now have gone but the rotten franchise he was steering remains in place and no change at the top will alter that. This whole basket case operation is a failure on every level.

"The Horton resignation opens the door for the this sorry chapter to be bro‎ught to a close and that means sweeping GTR away and returning the services to public ownership with safety , access and quality the guiding priorities."
