RAIL SAFETY----BEFORE PROFIT

Event Date: April 13 2010
RMT, along with transport unions from other European countries, is calling on the European Railways Agency (ERA) to give a clear commitment that rail safety and jobs will not be sacrificed in the interests of competition and profit.
As a first step we are calling for a mass protest at the offices of the European Railway Agency in Lille, France on Tuesday 13 April 2010 at 11.00. It is essential that RMT members play as full a role as possible in this demonstration, which the union has been instrumental in calling.
RMT is calling on all transport unions and organisations that defend public transport and the environment to oppose the systematic destruction of national rail networks, jobs and safety standards brought about as a result of the implementation of European Union rail liberalisation packages.
