13 July 2012Our alternative to the cuts campaign
13th July, 11 a.m. - 3 p.m.
Main speaker - Bob Crow, General Secretary RMT
The government has set out their vision for the future of UK rail services, and it's a bleak picture for rail travellers, workers and businesses relying on the network. They want the industry to find huge cost savings, and have made clear that these savings must come at the expense of passengers and railway workers, not the private train operators. In fact, private operators are to be rewarded with longer franchises and greater freedom. The government’s strategy for rail is a direct attack on the services you rely on and the staff that deliver them. What’s more, it will lead to more inefficiency, fragmentation and money diverted away from investment into the profits and dividends of private train operators.
