Sack Southern Rail:__

Railway passengers want to get to their destination on time and in reasonable comfort. Railway staff want to get them where they’re going and be paid and treated decently for doing so. Southern Rail has failed to do this on a catastrophic scale. For months now passengers on the Southern Rail network have been left with a service that hasn't worked and staff face deteriorating working conditions or redundancy.  Privatisation cares neither about the passengers nor the staff but about profits for its shareholders. 

We demand that Southern and their parent company Govia be stripped of their franchises, and that these be taken into public ownership. 

We stand with the rail unions who are striking to defend jobs and passenger safety and demand every train continues to have adequate staffing and decent working conditions. That a full timetable for passengers is renewed immediately and compensation offered to those who have been affected by the disruption, taken from the profits of the Southern rail shareholders. 

Please sign and share.
