Transport Workers Need Support!

Our Bus and Coach Rail and Tram workers are valuable to our society. My plea to Government today is not to abandon them. help keep them in jobs find the resources!

Key industry trade bodies like the Confederation of Passenger Transport are calling on Government to urgently provide a £1bn support package for bus in order to prevent tens of thousands of jobs being lost.

Chancellor Rishi Sunak will later today announce further measures Government will take to support workers throughout the Covid-19 outbreak.

The fact is that both Bus and Coach Operators and local authorities across the UK are removing peak time travel pass restrictions to make it easier for older people to get to supermarkets during the coronavirus peak. This is good news, but if the transport industry takes a furher down turn…I hope that the Government make plans to pay our transport workers…
