Support in Nottingham

The strike is being supported by many people we’ve spoken to at Nottingham station.

John Rees, 70, said: “I stand in support with RMT, there needs to be maximum pressure to get what is right. We don’t want to be out here, but there has to be strike action for change. I’d like to see the railways and energy companies transferred back into public ownership.”

Jane Bramley, 74, said: “Of course I support the strike, this is the pandemic that hasn’t been talked about. It’s good this action is being taken.”

And Martin Sleath, 66, said: “We’ve been hampered under austerity. I used to work in the public sector and retired in 2019, but even in that I think there were two pay rises in all the time I worked. It’s great to see that there is this fight going on, especially with the cost of living crisis.

“Cutting public transport services is absolutely not what should be happening when there is the climate crisis going on, too. There is a whole range of issues going on here. The service at the moment is unreliable, and it can be fixed. Signallers working today won’t be competent enough working them and there could be problems. There is a huge public support for this.”
