TUSC backs RMT struggle against Merseyrail

Merseyside Trade Unionist and Socialist Coalition (TUSC) deplores the refusal of Labour-run Merseyrail to engage in constructive negotiations with the RMT and we continue to offer our full support to the union in their fight to keep guards on trains, including the decision for the next strike. We recognise that our trains need a safety critical role, to be carried out by a fully-qualified guard.

The RMT fight is the fight of all who give priority to safety rather than delivering the highest profit to shareholders. Therefore we condemn in the strongest of terms the local Labour politicians' decision to press for driver-only operation.

TUSC spokesperson on the city region mayoral election, Roger Bannister, says:

"I fully support the RMT in its campaign to defend safety on trains and call for the proposed driver-only policy to be immediately withdrawn. It's frankly unbelievable that some Labour politicians are so hell-bent on removing guards from our trains when the public clearly favours their retention, and shocking that Labour's candidate for city region mayor cannot seem to find the necessary words to condemn this unsafe, unnecessary and unpopular policy. The city region deserves far better than this."

Finance appeal

The coronavirus crisis has laid bare the class character of society in numerous ways. It is making clear to many that it is the working class that keeps society running, not the CEOs of major corporations.

The results of austerity have been graphically demonstrated as public services strain to cope with the crisis.

The government has now ripped up its 'austerity' mantra and turned to policies that not long ago were denounced as socialist. But after the corona crisis, it will try to make the working class pay for it, by trying to claw back what has been given.

Inevitably, during the crisis we have not been able to sell the Socialist and raise funds in the ways we normally would.

We therefore urgently appeal to all our viewers to click here to donate to our Fighting Fund.
