Action for Rail is a campaign involving the TUC, and its affiliated unions with members working on the railways – ASLEF, RMT, TSSA and Unite. Its aim is to work with passenger groups, rail campaigners and environmentalists to campaign against cuts to rail services and staffing and to promote the case for integrated, national rail under public ownership.
Freight on Rail is a partnership between the rail trade unions, the rail freight industry and Campaign for Better Transport.
Since 2010 ASLEF has played a leading role in the development of a Network Rail and Samaritans suicide prevention programme which aims to reduce the number of railway suicides and provide support to those affected by them.
