Central Trains chops 50 jobs

01 July 2005

Central Trains has announced a ‘reorganisation’, which appears to be an easily-cracked code meaning ‘job losses’. Surely enough, 50 jobs are to go.

Although the cuts do not impact on train crews, the union is concerned about any loss of service on a line which has been subject to so much complaint from customers. 

The union will be considering the implications of the announcement at national level following a report from District Organiser Mick Whelan. 

Co-incidentally Philip White, Chief Executive of the National Express Group which owns Central Trains, has been awarded a bonus of over half a million pounds to add to his £450,000 salary.
