RMT, Britain's largest rail union, has today welcomed the commitment by Labour to end Driver Only Operation (DOO) on the national rail network.

The announcement by Labour means that as well as the party opposing the government’s current attempts to expand DOO, if Labour is elected they will also end DOO on the national rail network and guards will be guaranteed on all trains.

RMT General Secretary Mick Cash said,

“RMT guard members have been at the forefront of fighting Driver Only Operation and this welcome announcement reflects that their struggle has been absolutely right from the very start to warn of the dangers of Driver Only Operation to safety, security and accessibility.

“Ending Driving Only Operation and putting safety critical Guards back on trains is a modern, transformational policy that will provide real change, especially for disabled and vulnerable passengers.”
