Train operator to cut station staff numbers

A London commuter train company is set to cut the number of station staff, according to leaked proposals.

According to London’s Evening Standard newspaper, South East Trains will withdraw staff from stations, except in the morning rush hour.

The company runs trains throughout the South East of England.

Unions have warned of strike action to prevent the plan going ahead.

Bob Crow, leader of the RMT union, told the Evening Standard it would mean a “worse service for the travelling public but also less security, resulting in more vandalism and assaults on passengers and our members”.
