Network Rail Western Region Redundancies

EDM number 454 in 2009-10, proposed by David Drew on 14/12/2009.
Categorised under the topic of Railways.

That this House is extremely concerned at the decision of Network Rail to introduce compulsory redundancies amongst rail maintenance workers despite receiving Government subsidy of £5 billion per annum; notes with dismay that these redundancies will affect most of the rail network, including the loss of over 300 jobs on Network Rail's Western Region route; is appalled that skilled green jobs are being lost when they will be needed to expand and improve the nation's railway; is also alarmed at the safety implications of reducing a workforce who are responsible for ensuring the safe inspection and repair of track, signals and other rail infrastructure; and calls on Network Rail to review immediately its decision.

This motion has been signed by a total of 27 MPs.
