RMT responds to latest Government confusion in advance of announcement on July 19th move out of COVID measures

RMT General Secretary Mick Lynch said:

“Yet again there's a real danger of the government making up policy on the hoof on critical issues and that is reflected in the comments of ministers this morning.
“Back in the real world discussions are on-going at industry-wide level but all parties are having to second-guess what the government will say later today and that is not good enough.

“All the indications are that the government are going for a free-for-all, whereas common sense and medical advice seems to indicate that some level of control should remain in place in the public realm.

“RMT'’s priority will be the safety of our members and the travelling public and the union will continue to campaign for the staffing levels and enhanced, in-house cleaning services that the pandemic has exposed as being key to delivering that safe operation.”
