RMT warns of chaos on transport services

RMT warns of chaos on transport services in the morning as Government urges return to work.

RMT General Secretary Mick Cash said today;

"The Governments "return to work" policy from Wednesday morning risks unleashing total chaos on a transport network which has not been told to prepare for a rise in numbers until next Monday. This is a ridiculous and dangerous way to treat both staff and passengers alike and will have potentially lethal consequences. 

"Maintaining social distancing on trains and tube is a massive logistical exercise that requires planning, resources and the protection of staff managing the flows of passengers. To rush that exercise is a disgrace. 

"RMT has made it clear that our members have a right to refuse to work in unsafe conditions and the union will be closely monitoring the situation tomorrow morning. We will have no hesitation in protecting our members health, safety and livelihoods by whatever means required. The government will be held to account for their actions."
