Conference time always highlights the key issues that have arisen in the last 12 months and the issues activists need to address in the coming 12 months. This year's ASLEF conference is no different. The biggest issue that could divide us is harmonisation of wages and conditions. The basic principle should be that the hard fought-for conditions that have been gained should not be given up. One driver should not pay to bring another driver up to a better standard of conditions. This is just another way for the railway companies to avoid paying and to improve their profits.
