RMT Press Office:
RMT challenges South Western Railways for urgent clarification over guarantee of a second member of staff on trains.
General Secretary Mick Cash said.
"We have seen the press statement from SWR guaranteeing to roster a second member of staff on their trains which is at odds with what they have been telling us directly.
"I have written to the company today seeking urgent clarification on whether they genuinely mean that a second safety critical member of staff will be guaranteed to be be present on their trains. No ifs, no buts.
"This a crucial issue that goes right to the heart of the dispute and the company now need to clarify for us and their passengers exactly what they mean in their public statements. "
