‘One union, one voice’

As we face one of the biggest economic challenges of our generation it is important that rail unions come together in the protection of the rail community because it is the community which is the primary factor to why we are all here. One way of doing this is to agree to this union’s policy of ‘One union, one voice’, a rail specific union representing everyone who works on or within the railways.

There will be obstacles but they will be of our own making with the primary obstacle to one union being our own determination for change, and it is only the workers who can make it a reality, the very people who are at the forefront of the RAIL INDUSTRY
