Virgin Trains criticised for tweet blaming drivers for lack of service
Company gets angry Twitter response to statement blaming drivers for not volunteering to work on rest days
Virgin Trains has been criticised heavily online after blaming a series of train cancellations on Saturday on a shortage of drivers volunteering to work on rest days.
Since there is no obligation to work overtime, do you really believe it is correct to blame your drivers publicly? @RMTunion
Sudden? You mean you don’t schedule things to allow for rest periods? You want drivers to be suffering from fatigue? Thought about that?
