Yorkshire train driver and left activist Tosh McDonald spoke to the Star yesterday about his election as President of train drivers’ union Aslef.

Mr McDonald is a Morning Star supporter and works from Doncaster.

He was a freight train guard before becoming a train driver and told the Star: “The depot at Donny was run by Aslef — this was in British Rail’s time — and Aslef dictated what happened.

“They took the argument to management, day in and day out, proceeding, moving forward, and not waiting for management to come and attack them. I was so proud to know those people. When I became a driver, and became a member of Aslef, I hope the lessons they taught me gave me a good base to do what I could for the union.”

Mr McDonald supports campaigns including South Yorkshire Freedom Riders, fighting for free public transport for pensioners and disabled people.

He is also a Harley Davidson biker.
