RMT strike and picket line

Supported by drivers, station staff and public, West Midlands Train guards went on strike on Saturday 16th November.

Rail bosses want to remove safety-critical guards from trains and the members and their union are not having it!  Over a dozen workers picketed Coventry station and gave out information to the public throughout the long day.

Here is the rail union’s flyer that explains the issues (the union is the RMT – Rail, Maritime & Transport).

And here’s a solidarity bulletin produced by Socialist Party RMT members in the West Midlands.

Workers plan further action in defence of their jobs and of rail safety.  Why not get your union branch, workplace or community organisation to send a message of solidarity?

Keep the guard on the train!

Keep the train safe!
