Fair Transport Europe

Railway workers in the UK are striking today to demand that guards stay on the train. Driver-only trains are a huge safety risk, and an insult to the most vulnerable passengers. But we see more driver-only trains spreading all over Europe in the name of "cost cutting" and "efficiency".

This is a strike for transport jobs, for public safety and for the right of everyone to access transport services. That's #FairTransport.

Fighting the rise of driver-only campaigns will be a focal point of the Fair Transport campaign in the next months.

Check out this film from the National Union of Rail, Maritime and Transport Workers (RMT) and read more about the strike:

I'm sure many commuters are sick of not knowing if their train to work is going to be running from one day to the next because they're striking so regularly. Extortionate wages for train drivers and they complain they can't get staff and excessive ticket prices. Let the lot go automated and hopefully rail fares will fall and reliability will improve.

Too many snow flakes in this industry nowadays not capable of doing the job

It's not about beeing capable of doing the job or not, but about beeing paid for all the services which the companies require from the workers oposed to geting some of the workers services for nothing. I prefer to say that there are to many tourist this days doing this job and killing it. They are going on the trucks, buses and coaches happy to visit new places without asking a fair payment. Get yourself paid fairly, understand your rights and you will get extra money to visit places which you like during your free time.
