Govia Thameslink Railway: It's a regrettable decision

Commenting on the result of the ASLEF referendum result, Andy Bindon of Govia Thameslink Railway, Southern’s parent company, said:

It's a hugely disappointing outcome for our passengers, particularly as the agreement carried the full support and recommendation of the ASLEF leadership.

We have shown a willingness and desire to find a solution to their dispute and we will now, once again, sit down with the union, understand the issues which led to this regrettable decision by the drivers and try and find a way forward to resolving it."

– Andy Bindon, Govia Thameslink Railway
