RMT Press Office:
Rail Union RMT responds to savage job cuts announced at DB Cargo.
General Secretary Mick Cash said
“This is devastating news brought on through a combination of cut-throat practices in the UK rail freight industry and a shocking lack of Government support for this key section of our transport infra-structure.
“RMT’s executive will be meeting this afternoon to consider our response but it is imperative right now that the Government intervene to save skilled jobs in the rail freight industry which are being butchered before our eyes due to a lack of action to protect steel, coal and the rest of our manufacturing base.”
