Commenting on the agreement ASLEF General Secretary Mick Whelan said ‘I welcome this agreement which is a significant step forward in addressing the safety concerns of ASLEF members on Southern Rail.’

Mick added ‘ASLEF has never been against changes to working methods. Rather we believe any changes should be negotiated through agreed procedures. I am confident this this deal can provide a safer and appropriately staffed railway for passengers on Southern Rail and I will be recommending it to our members.’
