Concessionary Fares

Back to all Motions

Conference
2013 Water, Environment & Transport Service Group
Date
25 February 2013
Decision
Carried

Conference welcomes UNISON’s policy calling for free travel at all times on buses and trains across Britain as a whole and that this should be funded by the Government as per the policy document ‘Moving Forward’.

However, inconsistencies in provision across Authorities and cuts in funding for this provision are having an effect on the job security of our Transport members in bus companies and Local Authorities.

Conference calls on the WET Executive to actively campaign on this issue, working with the NEC, Labour Link and any other relevant UNISON body.
