Rail staff deserve to know what will happen on East Coast

15 May 2018

In the absence of a decision from the Secretary of State for Transport on the fate of the East Coast mainline, TSSA General Secretary Manuel Cortes commented:

“We have been contacted by our members in Virgin Trains East Coast telling us that the huge uncertainty about its future is creating huge anxieties among its staff. Rumours are awash including ones saying that wages will not be paid as Stagecoach is simply pulling out of the lost making venture.

“Our members need to be treated with greater respect. The Secretary of State for Transport, Chris Grayling must come clean and update this dedicated group of staff with the truth. Nothing else will do.”
