Union plea to renationalise the railways

RAIL union leader Bob Crow has hit out at government cuts and called for the renationalisation of the railways as he visited the Scottish Parliament.

The RMT general secretary was at Holyrood to meet MSPs and help launch a parliamentary group of the union.

Mr Crow said: "The clear message from RMT and the whole trade union movement in Scotland is that ordinary people must not be made to pay for an economic crisis that they have played no part in creating. We know there is a huge majority of people who want Scotland's railway services taken back into public hands."

Labour MSP Elaine Smith, convener of the RMT parliamentary group, said: "RMT is at the forefront of fighting against public sector cuts."
