Londons Airports in the firing line as Ticket office “carnage” plan across the South in disarray as RMT steps up campaign

 
 
 
Londons Airports are in the firing line as Railway Ticket Office closure plans across the South are said to be in disarray as the RMT steps up its selective strikes campaign. Ticket offices serving the Gatwick Express route, Luton and possibly Stansted Airport are all due to be axed say the Union.    
 
The RMT railway union  claims that plans to axe and downgrade eighty one railway station ticket office across the Thameslink, Southern and Great Northern franchise are in disarray.

The public consultation delayed, as pressure from the Union over the threats to services, jobs and safety is being highlighted. 

RMT claim they were  handed a leak of the planned closures less than two weeks ago.  The union launched a campaign to defend jobs and services at the 81 stations being set up to lose their ticket offices across routes served by Thameslink, Southern, Great Northern and Gatwick Express.

 RMT has now learnt that the public consultation on the plans has been delayed, although not scrapped, as they say "the company have encountered a groundswell of public anger from the Midlands down to the South Coast."

RMT  say they are determined the union campaign will continue and will be stepped up as Govia Thameslink regroup and redraw the consultation timetable.

A postcard campaign is ready to roll urging the public to engage in the pending consultation and asking them to apply pressure to local politicians across the routes affected.

There are three categories of stations in the closure programme, the first wave, which includes stations like Tooting, Circklewood, Streatham, Alexandra Palace, Selhurst and Wandsworth Common are closing immediately.

A second wave will close shortly after 'passengers have been “re-educated” sufficiently into using ticket machines' and includes Balham, Loughborough Junction, Reigate, Shoreham, Sutton, City Thameslink and Falmer.

A third wave, which will close outside of peak hours when a longer period of “re-education” has been undertaken, with the threat of eventual total closure, sets up services at stations including Epsom, Leatherhead, Eastbourne, Lewes, Horsham, Hove, Hitchin, Kings Lynn, Hatfield and Potters Bar. 

A full list of the targets for closure and their categories is set out below.

RMT general secretary Mick Cash said:

“RMT hit the ground running last week with our campaign to stop Govia’s Thameslink  from unleashing ticket office carnage across the routes that make up this franchise as they look to sacrifice, jobs, services and safety in the drive to line their own pockets at the passengers expense.

"The consultation timetable is now in disarray as the plans have sparked a storm of public outrage and the union will step up the fight as the company now regroup. We have no intention of allowing these plans to be bulldozed through and Govia should be forced to pull the proposals in their entirety.

“These plans, driven by the desire to de-staff our railways in the quest for profit, across rail franchises that are already seen as the basket-cases of Britain’s privatised railway network, can be stopped.  It is clear that Govia couldn’t give two hoots about passenger services, jobs and safety and are prepared to milk these routes for every single penny that they can extract regardless of what the travelling public think of them. 

“These plans are a disgrace and Govia should be slung out and these essential rail services taken into public ownership before these latest profit-driven cuts are allowed to rip through these 81 stations from North to South. It is no coincidence that this threat comes as Southern are already gearing up to axe guards from their services in yet another lethal gamble with safety-critical jobs on some of Britain’s most dangerously overcrowded trains and platforms.

“RMT will be stepping up the campaign of opposition to these delayed and discredited plans and we will be working with the travelling public to stop them in their tracks.”
