National Express East Anglia 48-Hour Strike
July 31, 2009
Videos in date order

RAIL UNION RMT confirmed that today's strike action on National Express East Anglia has been solidly supported across the franchise with the vast majority of services at a complete standstill and with managers running only a few token, ghost trains as a publicity stunt. RMT members have shown their all-out determination to secure a fair deal on pay and working conditions from a company which has sucked in billions in public subsidies in the past ten years. The first of eight days of planned strike action on National Express East Anglia coincides with publication of the companys interim results. Despite bullish statements earlier this month in the wake of their spectacular collapse on the East Coast route, Nat Ex have today resorted to pleading poverty, reporting a loss of over £30 million in the first six months of the year. The company, which has been subject to a barrage of takeover speculation, are begging to hold on to their East Anglia and C2C franchises despite clear cross-default clauses which mean that their impending default on the East Coast should see them stripped of their other contracts, a position supported by the Transport Select Committee earlier this week.
