2023 National Disabled Members' Conference
5 July 2023
Carried as Amended

Conference, we all support the RMT in their campaign to maintain ticket offices and the employment of railway personnel. The removal of ticket offices at stations and cuts to railway staff disproportionately affect disabled people. Conference believes that train station offices and railway personnel should not be reduced to protect the safety and wellbeing of disabled passengers.

Conference, we call upon the national disabled members committee to work with the national WET service group to campaign against proposed plans to reduce ticket offices and the reduction of railway personnel, and to petition the government, Network Rail, and railway operators to promote engagement and consultation with relevant service users.
