The RMT union has ap­pealed di­rectly to driv­ers be­long­ing to ASLEF to defy their own union’s ad­vice and vote against the deal.

RMT South East Re­gional Or­gan­iser Paul Cox told the BBC: “It looks like this of­fer is a bribe, and the RMT has con­sis­tently re­fused bribes. It does noth­ing for safety and there’s noth­ing new on the ta­ble.

“We hope all the driv­ers on South­ern who are be­ing bal­loted will see it for what it is - a sham. I am ap­peal­ing to all the driv­ers to re­ject it.

“Driv­ers are be­ing bribed to re­ject a safety prin­ci­ple. They have been loyal to the cause; it’s the of­fi­cials of an­other union that have let them down.”
