Old disused sleepers have brass plaques displaying names of various past well thought of drivers, that are sadly not with us anymore.

John McDonnell makes stand for democracy, says RMT

RMT press release, issued today

HAYES AND Harlington MP John McDonnell made a stand for democracy with his demonstration in the House of Commons today, Britain’s specialist transport union said.

Condemning the MP’s suspension from the house after he seized the Mace in the Commons chamber, RMT said that Mr McDonnell had been right to label as a disgrace the denial of a vote by MPs on the controversial decision to build a third Heathrow runway.

Third runway a grave mistake for the environment, says RMT

RMT press release, issued today

Union will continue to campaign for sustainable high-speed rail

BRITAIN’S BIGGEST rail union will continue to campaign for high-speed rail as the sensible and sustainable alternative to the massive and unnecessary Heathrow airport expansion announced today.

Giving the runway the nod has undermined the crucial challenge to reduce carbon emissions and has set back the achievement of a modern transport network that would serve the environment and the economy into the future, says RMT

High-speed rail is the solution to Heathrow problem, say unions

RMT press release, issued today

INVESTMENT IN a high-speed rail network with a hub serving Heathrow would make a third runway at the airport unnecessary and provide an environmentally friendlier alternative to tens of thousands of short-haul flights, a group of unions say today.

High-speed rail would create tens of thousands of jobs – including at Heathrow – and would provide a cleaner option than airport expansion, say RMT, ASLEF and PCS.
