The most recent quote attributed to Mick Cash came from an article called RMT train crews to stage further 24-hour walkout after UK bank holiday: “That represents a serious safety and accessibility risk and short of the guarantee of a second safety-qualified member of staff on Southern services we have no option but to confirm a further day of strike action. Merseyrail are completely ignoring the clear wishes of their own passengers, who overwhelmingly oppose the idea of driver-only operated trains on their network.”.

Mick Cash quotes

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

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

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

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

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the case that if a disabled passenger once had the guarantee of a guard on their service and that guarantee is withdrawn then the disabled passenger has been disadvantaged.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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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
