It's worth noting that this group is supported by the railway unions, not best known for putting passengers interests first. The website gives no details of the organisation, its source of funds, or contact details.

It does have the logos of the four unions plus the TUC at the bottom, though I agree they dont stand out. They presumably expect people to use either their Facebook or Twitter pages.

It seems to me that there is much common ground for rail staff and passengers.

Indeed. And no indication of the individuals behind the campaign either.

It might just be poor design and organisation - but it is hard to take a campaign seriously when the organizers want to hide behind an apparently anonymous website. It just feels like they don't want to be associated with their own campaign - and I have to wonder what they are ashamed of?

If they want to be taken seriously by the public they will need to up their game presentation wise.

Really? Although there may be common ground between some workers and passengers there isn't much between unions and passengers. The unions may witter on about providing a public service and safety, etc, etc, but they care about their members (which is fair enough becasuse that's what they're for), not passengers.
