Demo - Keep the Guard on the Train – South West Trains
Monday, 21st of August '17

Dear Colleagues

We have been asked by Branches in our Wessex Region to make you aware of the First Group/MTR takeover of the South West Trains franchise on 20th August 2017.

These incomers have made it public that they are not committing to the Guards’ role as it is now and neither will they make it known what their plans are for the future. Consequently, our colleagues on SWT believe the time has come to send a clear message to First Group/MTR that we will stand up and campaign hard to ensure that existing agreements that we have with SWT are preserved and remain in place and to keep the operational role of the guard on the train.

To send this message a demonstration has been arranged at Waterloo Station on 21st August 2017 at 08-00am (EXIT 6 Opposite Platform 20-24 Victory Arch), a poster is attached with all the details and the local Branch Secretary’s contact details are given below. Obviously support would be appreciated from us in the neighbouring RMT Regions hence this message.

Hope to see as many of you there as possible.

With best wishes.
RMT SOUTH EAST
