Anti-DOO lobby of Liverpool's transport committee

Today, 7th December, a lobby gathered at the Cunard Buildings, Mann Island, ahead of a meeting of Liverpool's Transport Committee.

The lobby, which was called for by the RMT, was to display to the councillors on the committee the overwhelming public support in favour of guards remaining on the trains.

The committee has a majority of Labour councillors who have the power to settle the Merseyrail 'driver only operation' (DOO) dispute if they so wish.

A statement from the RMT read: "The RMT believes that in the interests of public safety we need to keep the guards on our trains."

The RMT is firmly against the planned driver-only operation, in the interests of the public and workers' safety.

The lobby was held before the meeting took place and was attended by over 40 people including RMT members and supporters.
