RMT attacks Aslef deal in Southern rail dispute
Conductors’ union says agreement over driver-only trains is a betrayal and vows to fight on in its own dispute with Southern
The RMT has said a deal agreed between another union and Southern rail to end a dispute over driver-only trains is a “shocking betrayal” of workers and passengers.
Leaders of Aslef agreed to recommend the deal to almost 1,000 drivers after saying it would improve safety. But the RMT said after seeing details of the agreement that it would lead to de-staffing of trains.
