RMT on Northern HS3 Proposal

RMT on Northern HS3 Proposal

27 October 2014

RMT Press Office

Mick Cash, RMT General Secretary, said: "RMT has led the fight for expansion and modernisation of rail services in the north but it is cynical in the extreme that the cheerleaders behind today's announcement, the government and Rail North, are the same bodies threatening to devastate jobs and services through the new Northern and TPE franchises.

"RMT will not tolerate this rank hypocrisy and instead of jam tomorrow, light years off in the future, we are demanding an expansion of services and capacity now , rather than the proposed cuts, and that is the message we will be taking to parliament in our lobby over the northern franchise carve-up on the 4th November. "
