RAIL union RMT threw its weight behind a demonstration to save Britain’s train-building industry yesterday. 

Their members will join campaigners fighting to defend the industry on the streets of Derby on Friday.

Derby is one of Britain’s most historic train-manufacturing centres, building the locomotives which spread Britain’s rail expertise around the world.

After a high-profile and sustained campaign, Bombardier’s train manufacturing plant at Derby was awarded a contract to build a new fleet for the Crossrail trans-London line.

Today at least 10,000 jobs rely on continuation of train-building in Derby.

To mark the award of the contract and maintain the campaign to defend rail jobs and for a publicly-owned railway, a rally takes place between 5:30pm and 7:30pm at the Waterfall pub near Derby station.

Speakers will include RMT President Peter Pinkney and local MP Chris Williamson.
