Stop the destruction of passenger transport services

Back to all Motions

2015 National Disabled Members' Conference
3 July 2015
Carried as Amended

Conference, we understand that across the country the slashing of transport services to the public will result in the abandoning of printed timetables, the closure of travel centres, information centres and ticket offices.

Conference we call on the National Disabled Members Committee to work with the NEC, Labour Link and other relevant bodies to campaign to stop the practice of disadvantaging disabled people because UNISON disabled members may rely on these services to get to and from work and maintain an independent life style
