Support to the RMT in its protest against ticket office closure on London Overground stations,

As London and Brent  Green Party Trade Union liaison officer I would like to send our support to the RMT in its protest against ticket office closure on London Overground stations, (https://www.kilburntimes.co.uk/news/transport-union-to-hold-protest-against-ticket-office-cuts-1-631598 and https://www.rmt.org.uk/campaigns/rail/save-london-overground-ticket-offices/ )





Just as with the campaign to retain and reinstate guards on trains, this is not just an issue of protecting jobs, but it is also a public welfare issue. Stations will become less safe, secure and accessible and it will probably become more difficult to purchase the correct tickets. Additionally, the reduction in station staffing discourages use of public transport, just at a time when it should be being encouraged, as an alternative to car use because of the need to combat climate change.
