RMT Press Office:
RMT slams latest outrageous assault on front line Southern rail staff by Transport Secretary Chris Grayling.
General Secretary Mick Cash said;
"This is complete garbage from the transport secretary and an outrageous assault on the Southern Rail workforce. He has personally chosen to give Southern/GTR a free pass to cancel and wreck services without penalty.
"Instead of attacking the front line staff who are trying to hold safety and services together he should be sacking this basket-case Southern outfit and replacing them with Directly Operated Railways with a commitment to putting public service before private profit."
