RMT responds to National Audit Office report

8 March 2024

RMT Press Office:

RMT general secretary Mick Lynch said: “This report confirms that both passengers and the taxpayer have been victims of the government’s shambolic management of our railways.

“Ministers promised reform after our privatised and fragmented railways resulted in the timetable meltdown in 2018 but since then the railways have lurched from crisis to crisis including the government’s disastrous attempts to cut services and pick fights with rail workers.
“The government’s fixation with protecting the vested interests of privatisation at the expense of rail staff and rail users means that they are incapable of reforming our railway. 
“We need a new approach to create a publicly owned railway which will deliver a better deal for passengers, workers and the taxpayer.”
