RMT responds to Office for Rail and Road report

6 October 2022

RMT Press Office:

Responding to the ORR report on Network Rail, RMT general secretary Mick Lynch said:

"The political thrust of this report is to target the pay and conditions of maintenance workers and station staff - the very same railway workers facing mass job cuts.

"The ORR also fails to acknowledge the extortionate pay of Network Rail executives who took home around a million pounds in the last two years.   

"In stark contrast, Network Rail staff have endured a 3 year pay freeze and have seen a sharp decline in living standards.
"There are also people working for the train operating companies who have suffered years of low pay.
"Strong trade unions like the RMT are important in raising wages and creating good safe working environments.
"And if means RMT members wages are higher than the market rate, there is something wrong with the market."
