Last quote by Mick Cash

This is yet another case of the government and their rail industry cronies investigating themselves while the services they are responsible for are a global laughing stock. Chris Grayling has propped up the basket case Southern rail operation from the off.feedback

Mick Cash quotes

Apr 08 2017

It is well established that once the guarantee of a guard is withdrawn then disabled passengers are disadvantaged because they can no longer be assured of being able to turn up and get on or off the train at unstaffed stations.feedback

Apr 01 2017 - Article 50

With the government triggering article 50, and freeing the UK from EU rail directives, there is now no excuse at all for carrying on with the wholesale rip-off that exports British fare payers' cash overseas.feedback

Mar 27 2017 - Article 50

Once again the government has refused to consider the public sector option for a major rail franchise and instead it's a foreign state operator, in this case the Chinese state, which is set to make a killing at the British taxpayers' expense. The nonsense is that, with the government triggering article 50 this week, they would be free to ignore EU rail directives that slam a block on public ownership. It is, frankly, ludicrous that the Tories are continuing with the 'any state but the British state' policy which has plundered our railways for over two decades.feedback

Mar 21 2017

RMT recognises the severe impact that the action will have on Grand National Day but we are dealing with an employer that refuses to listen or engage with the union on the critical issue of safe rail operation and we ask the public to understand that we have no option but to take this high-profile action to force the company back to the negotiating table. Merseyrail are completely ignoring the clear wishes of their own passengers, who overwhelmingly oppose the idea of Driver Only Operated trains on their network.feedback

Mar 21 2017

It is disgraceful that Merseyrail wrecked a golden opportunity to engage in serious talks with the union. RMT reps set out key points for discussion that could have moved the dispute forwards, Merseyrail kicked that conciliatory approach back in our faces and made it crystal clear that all that they are interested in is the union signing a surrender document which gives them a free hand to rip apart the safety culture on the railway. It is that cynical and hostile stance from Merseyrail which has left us with no option but to put on this additional strike action.feedback

Mar 21 2017

That pig-headed attitude has forced the union's hand and the idea that we would compromise on the fundamental issue of rail safety is absurd.feedback

Mar 21 2017

RMT members on Southern rail have been fighting for safety and access to rail services for nearly a year now and it is time for the company to get out of the bunker and to start making some progress. There is no reason for Southern/GTR to drag their heels and RMT is prepared to meet on the 4th of April as they have requested.feedback

Mar 21 2017

RMT guards and driver members on Southern have shown incredible strength and resilience throughout the past year and have been clear from the off that this is not a dispute about 'who opens the doors' – it is a dispute about a safe method of operation and about the guarantee of that crucial, second safety-critical member of staff on Southern services.feedback

Mar 15 2017

We are of course requesting a full copy as it goes to the heart of our disputes with the company. In the meantime RMT is pressing yet again for urgent talks with the company in our guards' and drivers' disputes.feedback

Mar 13 2017

It is obviously the case that if a disabled passenger once had the guarantee of a guard on their service and that guarantee is withdrawn then the disabled passenger has been disadvantaged. Far from being about modernisation, driver only trains turns the clock back on the rights of disabled and older passengers.feedback

Mar 13 2017

The RMT action on Merseyrail this morning is absolutely solid with pickets out in force at all key points and the response on the ground has been wholly positive. This action could have been avoided if Arriva hadn't backpedalled from earlier pledges to retain the guard. It is now down to the company to get that pledge back on the table and engage with the union in talks over a safe and sustainable future built around the guarantee of a guard on the trains.feedback

Mar 03 2017

Without guards to keep passengers calm and lead safe evacuations, we would have had the potentially lethal prospect of passengers de-training themselves in cold, dark tunnels and stumbling towards tons of debris and damaged 25,000-volt overhead power lines.feedback

Feb 02 2017

Once we have the full details of the deal that has been struck today, and an assurance that the terms of reference of those talks will focus on the retention of a second safety-critical member of staff on Southern services, we can agree an immediate date for negotiations to commence.feedback

Jan 09 2017 - London

This action has been forced on us by savage cuts to jobs that have reduced London Underground to an under-staffed death trap at a time of heightened security and safety alert.feedback

Jan 03 2017

British passengers are paying the highest fares in Europe to travel on rammed services while the private train companies are laughing all the way to the bank.feedback

Dec 06 2016

This is the Tory Government dragging the railways back to the failed and lethal Railtrack model of the private sector running infrastructure. The idea that what Britain's railways need is more privatisation is ludicrous.feedback

Aug 10 2016

Our train manager members at Eurostar have a heavy commitment to shift work and unsocial hours and are sick and tired of the company's failure to honour agreements.feedback

May 23 2016

All parties have to be clear that Night Tube, a development that RMT supports, cannot be delivered on the cheap.feedback

May 23 2016

There were still unresolved issues concerning the Tube's engineers and it urged management to move quickly to reach a settlement with that group of workers that did not leave them disadvantaged on conditions and pensions.feedback
