RMT on facemasks on public transport

Following the announcement that face masks will become compulsory on public transport, General Secretary Mick Lynch said;

"We support the wearing of masks but there are major issues about enforcement and its our members left in the front line with angry passengers who refuse to comply. 

"The Government must make the resources available to properly police this reintroduction of compulsory face coverings on our transport services . 

"We also need to end this disjointed approach to COVID measures and get some consistency that avoids the chaos and confusion that has become a hallmark of this administration."
