BUS AND RAIL WORKERS STAND FIRM

BUS AND RAIL WORKERS STAND FIRM.

Unite bus workers

Attended RMT event at Lime Street and Bus Drivers’ picket line today. Spirit still undiminished.

John Tilly’s impassioned speech condemned the stance of the Dutch-owned Merseyrail, and strongly criticised Labour Public figures who refuse to support the call for Safety Critical guards to be retained on the trains.

With Jed Bresnahan

Unite Branch Secretary Jed Bresnahan says spirit of drivers is ‘top dog.’ They are ready for the long haul. He expressed sympathy for the travelling public, but appreciated the incredible support indicated by the hoots from almost every vehicle that traveled along Green Lane.

The last bus strike was 30 years ago, Jed says, so they don’t take strike action unless there is extreme provocation from the employers.
