RMT Press Office:
Mick Cash RMT General Secretary said:
“This is a flimsy piece of work from a minority Government with no mandate and no ideas.
“The Government have nothing to say about the crisis blighting our privatised and fragmented railways which is there for all to see in the daily chaos on Southern Rail. The attack on staffing, safety and access is set to continue across the transport sector and will meet the fiercest possible resistance from RMT members and our supporters in the community.
“The scandalous neglect of Britain’s shipping industry clearly remains part of Tory Party policy and RMT will be stepping up the fight for the decent jobs, pay and working conditions that are the mark of a civilised society.”
