RMT on rail electrification "U-turn"

RMT on rail electrification

30 September 2015

RMT Press Office

General Secretary of largest rail union RMT, Mick Cash said: “This politically motivated stop-start approach to crucial rail developments is no way to run a transport system and it is no surprise to us that this U-turn comes in the run up to the Tory Party conference where RMT will be exposing the nonsense of the “Northern Powerhouse” as part of the mass demonstration in Manchester on Sunday.

“This announcement does nothing to tackle the immediate threat to jobs, safety and services wrapped up in the new Northern and TPE franchises which RMT will continue to kick up the political agenda while George Osborne rattles on about his fantasy-world light years off in the future.”
