    And that, purely and simply, is utter bollocks if you'd taken the time to read even some of the arguments on here.
    I have read all the arguments both on here and in the press. As far as I can see it is a political strike - well certainly it is from the RMT's point of view even though according to Lynch the president of the RMT "does not speak for the members" as he alleged in the TV debate the other night. Sounds like they need a new president then who DOES speak for the members.

      The RMT are generally recognised as the more militant of the two and a throwback to the 70s. ASLEF are quite mild so if they are pissed off then its with valid reason.

      No drivers today could engineer anything on a train and we haven't had anyone stoke a fire on a regular service train for 50 years.
      Shows us how out of date they are.

      Quite right. Argument won. I'll tell my colleagues to stand down.

      If you could. See if you can appeal to a common decency and respect for fellow man that seems to be as old fashioned and out of date as their full title.
      Your refusal to consider even the slightest, most reasonable criticism of the Unions throughout this thread sums up on microcosm why nobody is supporting the unions (or the govt or Southern) on this.

      whatever the arguments and whoever wins them when the strikers decide to go back it will still be a shite service

      If you've read my posts and my reasons for striking you will know that it's out of respect for passengers and their safety and security that we are striking. Disagree if you want but that's the truth. The unions are not beyond reproach at all but someone has to stand up and say, "this is wrong". And I'll leave you with this report highlighting just one of the reasons why a lot of people believe so strongly. http://www.eastbourneherald.co.uk/ne...ours-1-7766876

      Hahahaha! I've read it all now! Driver got out to say he was not trained to help her. Not trained to lift a piece of metal sheeting over to the door and give her a push up the ramp? He could have easily helped her but he's got a very good reason not to help hasn't he.
      The driver is squarely at fault here. Dispicable to leave someone in a wheelchair on the platform for two hours just to point score.

      I agree with Ernest. That poster isn't interested in your explanations. Don't waste your time.
