Thameslink Train Building Contract

16 June 2011

Commenting on the Government decision to award the Thameslink train building contract to Siemens

Commenting on the Government decision to award the Thameslink train building contract to Siemens, Gerry Doherty, leader of the TSSA rail union, said;

"Whilst this is good news for Siemens employees and suppliers in the UK, there is no disguising the fact that is a body blow to train making in the UK, particularly for Bombardier staff in Derby.

"It is really make your mind up time for Ministers if they are serious about keeping train making alive in the UK. Germany and France support their own rail industry through their manufacturing base. It is high time we did the same."
