RMT responds to Grayling's "digital railway" stunt

RMT responds to Grayling's

10 May 2018

RMT Press Office:

RMT General Secretary Mick Cash said;

"It's nothing but a smokescreen for Chris Grayling to suddenly start parading around as a great rail moderniser when he's the man who deliberately pulled the plug on a raft of key electrification and upgrade plans. No one is going to believe a word he says.

"‎Britain's railways have been jammed in the slow lane for decades due to a toxic combination of under investment, fragmentation and private profiteering.

"To drag ourselves into the digital age will take more than a PR stunt. It will require real investment in staffing and technology ‎and an end to the bleeding away of the cash required to make it happen by the greedy private train operators.

" A modern railway requires an integrated, publicly owned framework with the financial and staffing resources required to make up for years of neglect."
