“Banning strikes is the hallmark of the right wing junta not a democratically elected British government. RMT would fight any attempt to strip our members of their basic human rights.
“What the Tories are after is banning rail workers from striking to defend passenger safety and accessibility and that is a disgrace.
“This is old school class war from the Tories and would give the green light to the greedy private train companies to unleash havoc completely unchecked in the pursuit of profits.”
