Looking forward to Northern Rail:
(1) Sponsoring the event to take place in the next few weeks (and coordinating the timing so that it is convenient for all concerned.
(2) Flying my partner over from Prague and back - and compensating her for loss of wages (and Fuji film for coat of temporary staff cover)
(3) Paying cost of travel to/from and overnight stay in Glossop evening meals - and compensating me for two days loss of earning and my clients to find cover for me.
If they can afford to have such crappy industrial relations that they are too incompetent to run a train service, then they can easily afford this, multiplied by everyone else who is affected.
When are the useless capitalist owners/managers of the rail services going to get it into their pathetic heads that it is their duty to run a proper service, and if necessary shutting their pathetic mouth and obeying their superiors at RMT without comment or question - evening if it means licking their workers boots.
