December Rail Strikes Petition

Following the news that there are 27 days of planned strikes on South Western Railways (SWR) in December, Liberal Democrat candidate for Winchester & Chandler’s Ford, Paula Ferguson, has written to South Western Railway and the RMT to demand that they stop the planned strikes immediately.

Members of the RMT will walk out for 27 days throughout December 2019, causing chaos to commuters, to businesses and to people travelling for Christmas.

Paula, along with Liberal Democrat candidates Ed Davey (Kingston & Surbiton - shown with Paula above), Lynda Murphy (Eastleigh), Sarah Olney (Richmond Park & North Kingston), Munira Wilson (Twickenham), Paul Kohler (Wimbledon), Sue Wixley (Putney), Monica Harding (Esher & Walton) and Mark Gitsham (Battersea), have all written to SWR and the RMT.

We urge commuters to sign our petition to call off these strikes now! 

We, the undersigned, urge that SWR and the RMT return to the negotiating table with their respective teams, and secure a resolution to the ongoing industrial depute regarding guards and driver-operated trains immediately – and that these strikes are called off now.
