Interesting release from the RMT.

RMT General Secretary Mick Cash said;
“As with the Southern contract, the government is inserting clauses into new franchise agreements which will mean the tax payer will bankroll Teresa May’s war on the unions.

“It is absolutely scandalous that the public purse will be footing the bill for any industrial action taken against private rail companies. We also now know that that at the same time rail bosses are going to make over £1 billion implementing the government’s policy of getting rid of guards.

“It is clear that the Southern and other disputes are nothing to do with modernising our railway and everything to do with old fashioned union busting and cost cutting.”

***Yawn*** that old chestnut? Sing a new tune will you?

Did you read the rest of the link?

Nope - all the links posted get really dull, boring and one sided so assumed you would have picked out the bits that suited your position on this nonsense.

It gets to the nitty gritty of what Cash said.

Living down here does have some advantages. At least you can see them cry.

I havnt read through this thread but would just say the transport system is a public service and as such should never be disrupted by strikes . Contracts for the franchise and employees should be watertight and upheld by both sides .

Southern signed a agreement with ASLEF to consult them on any extension of DOO... they imposed it without consultation...in fact they actively hid their intentions when they met with union reps when they won the current franchise.

So you're 100% right, if the agreements in place were honoured... there would be no strikes.
