RMT have launched a new film and social media
drive supporting workers involved in disputes across the country
THE Rail Union RMT have launched a new film
and social media drive in support of both the:- "Keep The Guard" campaign and
the workers involved in disputes across the country in defence of rail safety.
A short film called:- "Unguarded," weaving together stories from three
individual passengers based on feedback over the past year, is released and
cascaded on social media platforms, from the 28 December 2017. It will be
followed up with short films homing in on the individual passenger stories which
will be released over the next 3 days.
RMT General Secretary Mick Cash said:- "The RMT is committed to using every tool
at our disposal to defend the role of the guard and to resist the profit driven
moves to throw these safety critical staff off our trains. These films are based
on real experiences that have been fed back to us by both passengers and our
members who deal with the daily reality of the de-staffing of the railway. The
themes that are a constant throughout are safety, security and accessibility on
the railway and we will not allow those messages to get shoved aside in the
barrage of rhetoric from the private companies, the Government and their
cheerleaders at the Rail Delivery Group.
RMT is confident this latest initiative will spark off a new surge in support
for the:- "Keep The Guard" campaign and for our members who find themselves at
the sharp end."
