Britain's transport workers - out in all weathers battling to keep services moving

With the current blast of cold weather forecast to worsen as we head towards the end of the week transport workers will be out in all sectors battling to keep Britain moving. 

RMT General Secretary Mick Cash said;

"I want to thank the travelling public for their continued support for our transport workers who will be out there  on rail, road and sea battling to keep Britain moving through the current blast of cold weather. Behind the scenes there is a huge logistical effort round the clock, led by boots on the ground, to deliver rail, bus and ferry services. Those involved deserve nothing but full respect. 

"The current and expected weather conditions are also a reminder to the employers that they need to be geared up and staffed up to cope with periods of high pressure on resources and that cuts have severe consequences which are exposed when the  weather deteriorates. 

"‎RMT will be monitoring the situation over the coming days and will be providing the usual full support to our members working at the sharp end of Britain's transport services."
