RMT on UK rail hub location

4 October 2021

RMT Press Office:

RMT says strategic location for UK rail hub shouldn't be subjected to a Government lottery.

RAIL UNION RMT said today that ‎the location of strategic rail hubs shouldn't be subjected to some sort of lottery after Grant Shapps tweeted that the base for Great British Railways will be decided in a competition.

The union has also demanded that staff in current strategic rail locations should be reassured that their jobs are not under threat.

RMT general secretary Mick Lynch said:

“The location of strategic hubs for the rail network is a serious business and shouldn't be subject to some sort of lottery.

“Staff at existing key rail locations should be given a reassurance by Grant Shapps that they won't be uprooted and shunted from pillar to post.”
