John Mann has called for Network Rail Executives to donate their rention bonuses to charity after it emerged they were leaving the company.
The Bassetlaw MP said: “It was unacceptable in the first place that taxpayers paid executives at Network Rail £300,000 to stay in their jobs.
“Now they have pocketed the money and are leaving anyway.”
“One of these executives is Robin Gisby, Head of Operations and Safety.”
It has been announced that Mr Gisby was to leave Network Rail next year and will be replaced by Phil Hufton who is currently the chief operating officer of the London Underground.
Mr Mann added: “Considering that Network Rail was severely criticised by a Parliamentary Select Committee this year for its poor safety record at level crossings it is particularly inappropriate for him to retain his bonus.”
“I am now calling on these executives to donate their bonuses to a charity which provides support to those who have lost loved ones to accidents on level crossings.”
It has recently been claimed that the firm’s head of operations and safety, Robin Gisby, has pocketed £300,000 in bonuses.
