2017-19 Session
That this House pays tribute to station staff on both the Mainline Railway and London Underground and the vital role that they play in helping to deliver a safe, secure and accessible railway; notes that station staff assist with train despatch and safety at the platform-train interface, preventing suicides, helping make stations feel secure for more vulnerable passengers, deterring crime and terrorism, assisting older and disabled passengers and providing expert travel and ticket advice; condemns the increasing trend by government and the train operating companies to reduce and casualise station staff, leading to the de-staffing of stations and closure of tickets offices which threatens passenger service and safety, especially at a time of rising crime on the railway; and supports the Staff Our Stations (SOS) campaign launched by the Rail, Maritime & Transport Union (RMT), which opposes station closures and cuts to station staff and ticket offices, and promotes the benefits to passengers of fully staffed stations.
