RMT Press Office:
RMT on news that Amey is taking over bulk of Carillion rail infrastructure works
General Secretary Mick Cash said;
"RMT's preferred option since the collapse of Carillion has been for their rail works to be taken directly in house but we recognise that today's announcement should guarantee up to 700 rail workers jobs and we will now be sitting down with Amey to work through the key details around continuity of employment and pensions.
"RMT remains concerned that some of Carillion's rail infrastructure works may not be covered by this agreement and we will continue discussions with Network Rail, TfL, the train companies and PWC to secure the future employment for all staff and that includes workers on Carliion contracts in other parts of the rail network."
