Action for Rail is a campaign involving the TUC, and its affiliated unions with members working on the railways – ASLEF, RMT, TSSA and Unite. Its aim is to work with passenger groups, rail campaigners and environmentalists to campaign against cuts to rail services and staffing and to promote the case for integrated, national rail under public ownership.
This short animation highlights the impact of rail privatisation with profits going straight into the pockets of rail company bosses and shareholders whilst cuts are made to staffing, maintenance and infrastructure and fares are rising three times faster than wages.
