Unite members campaign against rail fare increases

Unite members campaign against rail fare increases

31 March 2015

All across the UK Unite and other rail unions demonstrated outside rail stations to campaign for public ownership of the rail industry and against rail fare increases.

Outside Waterloo Station were Colenzo Jarrett Thorpe, Unites national officer for rail, and Mick Cash RMT General Secretary. Colenzo called to "Stop the great rail fare rip off and bring back rail into public ownership."

Earlier in the week members of Unite’s Retired members branches supporting the campaign handed out over 1000 leaflets at Euston!

Unite’s campaign is backed up by various opinion polls showing the British public are overwhelmingly in support of public ownership.
