RMT on cancellation of rail upgrade work

20 July 2017

RMT Press Office:

RAIL UNION RMT on new evidence today that essential upgrade and renewal work is being cancelled due to government cuts.

General Secretary Mick Cash said;

"All this Government's talk of rail investment is just jam tomorrow when in reality important upgrade and renewal work across the UK is being shelved and scrapped due to on-going austerity.

"If overseas rail companies weren't being given the green light to milk Britain's passengers of hundreds of millions of pounds a year we would have the funds to build a railway fit for the future.

"The only solution is public ownership‎."
