British unions dread massive job cuts

More than 20,000 railway jobs could be axed under government reforms of the industry, unions have warned.
Officials said surveys have consistently revealed that lack of staffing is a major concern of passengers, but they voiced fears cuts will be made as a result of the recent “value for money” review by Sir Roy McNulty. Savings suggested by the review could lead to thousands of job losses among guards, ticket office and station staff, maintenance workers and catering employees, said the unions.

Rail Performance Minister Norman Baker announced that the authorities’ plans are to reduce the cost of running the railway by GBP 3.5 Billion (EUR 4.4 Billion) per annum by 2019.
