Good old unions eh
Originally they did a great job protecting employees as bosses took the piss and worked unsafely.
Nowadays they call out workers over non urgent or non dangerous situations.
Mainly dough and keeping themselves in a job!!!
Why not just ban overtime working unilaterally.
That would have an effect in the bosses pocket as agency staff are dearer.
Why punish normal people going about they're business.
Disgraceful


They don't run the trains. They get paid regardless whether their service is white or not.

If you ban overtime there would be even fewer trains running as Southern need their drivers to work their rest days.
You can't use agency staff to drive trains, each driver needs to be trained in all aspects of the railway rules & regulations, traction and route knowledge (this can take 12-18 months).
Trains will still run as it's only RMT striking & not Aslef.


The Rail unions haven't learnt from the failed strikes of the past such as the dockers and print workers. They claim they're concerns are about passenger safety. Well when a tube driver was sacked for failing a breathalyzer they called a one day strike. They claimed it was a false positive because he was a diabetic yet failed to provide any medical proof to back that claim.
LBC asked a medical expert who poo pooed it. A mate of mine who is a tube driver felt it was all about the sacked driver being a mate of the union bosses.

When driverless trains are proposed and the unions ask the public for their support I wonder if they will get it?. Same mate has told me that the technology has been installed on several tube lines just not switched on. How long before it is on the railways.

Better to work with progress than draw a line in the sand. By the way how did it work out for the dockers and the print workers?
