A plea from rail company Southern for beleaguered passengers to tell the RMT union how they feel about ongoing strikes appears to have backfired.
Southern tweeted: “Time to get back on track. Tweet @RMTunion & tell them how rail strikes make you feel.”
Dozens of passengers immediately responded, but not in the manner rail bosses might have hoped.
Simon Cox echoed the thoughts of many, posting: “I dislike unions but I dislike incompetent management more.”
Another passenger, Marianne Powell, tweeted: “You brought this on yourselves. We, your customers are suffering.”
