RMT protest driver only operation

Old Palace Yard, Westminster, London. Wed 26 Apr 2017


 

DPAC supports the RMT because disabled people rely on guards to travel on trains  

 

 THis is a RMT national protest in support of staff on Southern, which they and the government see as a test case

 Already some trains have only a driver, but these are small units with only one or two coaches - not the 8 or 12 car

 trains which are common on the Southern. Trains on simple systems like the DLR run without drivers, but they

 need staff to look after passengers - and to drive in emergencies or when engineering work makes it necessary

 Trains are getting busier with more passengers and longer trains. We need to keep staff on them for safety
