Dave Prentis joins RMT picket line

UNISON and RMT general secretaries joing together at Brighton station to show support for striking Southern rail workers

UNISON general secretary Dave Prentis took the union’s solidarity to striking RMT members on Southern Rail this morning.

Mr Prentis joined his RMT counterpart Mick Cash on the picket line at Brighton Station this morning as the south coast town prepared to host UNISON’s national delegate conference.

The rail union is in dispute with Southern over the companies plans to remove guards from trains, a move the union says is unsafe.
