Merseyrail scupper talks on guards

Roger Bannister condemns the collapse of Merseyrail guards talks

TALKS AIMED at ending the Merseyrail guards’ dispute collapsed today when the company flatly refused to discuss the RMT’s compromise solution to the issue of Driver Only Trains. Roger condemns Labour councillors for their complicity in the cavalier attitude of the company. He is also appalled by Steve Rotheham’s failure to intervene to support the RMT in their objective of ensuring the safety of the travelling public. This can only be seen as a clear sign that he will preside over guards being withdrawn. Roger calls for continuing support for the Rail Union’s determination to protect all passengers.
