Follow Thatcher's lead: teach these union slobs a lesson.
This Christmas, commuters across England been subjected to the misery of a series of strikes on Southern Rail. ASLEF union members have walked out because they claim it would be “dangerous” to make their drivers press the button that activates the train doors.
Obviously, nobody thinks the drivers are incapable to undertaking this menial task. Rather, the dispute is about Southern’s desire move away from having a guard on every train. Frustratingly, this arrangement has already been agreed upon by ASLEF members working on the Thames Link rail service, which operates on the same line as Southern.
