First Great Westernby Tim Lezard

Trade unionists have been asked to join a campaign to stop rail bosses de-recognising the TSSA.

First Great Western has told the TSSA it intends to de-recognise the union in May – a move the union says will allow senior managers’ decisions to go unchallenged by staff.

The campaign, which has the support of the other rail unions, ASLEF and RMT, asks people to write to rail bosses asking them to reconsider their decision.

Messages can be sent to mark.hopwood@firstgroup.com and sharon.johnston@firstgroup.com.

A Facebook page has been set up here  along with the Twitter account at @TSSAFGW.
