RMT Press Office:
RMT response to RAIB report into tragedy at Margam, Neath Port Talbot in July 2019 published today
General Secretary Mick Cash said;
“Our first thoughts are with the families and friends of our members who lost their lives and our members who witnessed this tragic incident.
"The RAIB report is comprehensive and raises many issues of concern relating to industry standards, processes and arrangements and supports many of the concerns on track worker safety that RMT has been raising for many years. All parties in the industry need to reflect on the implications of the report and strive to put track safety as a top priority and make the necessary changes with the aim of eliminating fatalities and serious injuries.
"RMT will continue to engage with Network Rail, the rail companies and the authorities on issues arising from the report and will be pushing for the highest track safety standards possible in order to protect our members.”
