RMT Press Office:
RMT General Secretary Mick Cash said:
“First Group’s announcement that they will be ‘rationalising’ their portfolio and separating First Bus from the rest of their operation raises major concerns for our Bus members.
“RMT will be doing everything in its power to defend the jobs of our members and seek guarantees of continued employment.
“This announcement shows once the again the unstable and precarious nature of bus and rail privatisation and the need for public ownership.”
