Let's all back the strikers how can any Train driver afford to live on a median salary of £59,000 per year these days.

Average salary for a train cleaner is £19,763 per year. How can any of them afford to live?

 

WHAT WAS CLAIMED

The average rail worker earns £44,000.

OUR VERDICT

This figure is the median salary for rail sector roles. It includes train drivers, who are not involved in the RMT strike, and excludes other workers such as cleaners, who are. The RMT says the median salary of its rail members is £31,000.

oh and......ASLEF is the union representing train drivers. Not the RMT.
