The demonstration in north London is being organised by the Justice 4 Jarvis Workers campaign which represents the 1,200 workers who lost their jobs when the maintenance firm went bust.
Hopes were raised earlier this month that rival firm Babcock would take on the Jarvis staff. But Jarvis contracts have not all been signed over to Babcock leaving the future of the rail workers still in doubt.
Rail union RMT General Secretary Bob Crow is supporting the march. He said: “1200 Jarvis workers, skilled staff who we need out there on the tracks to keep our railways running, have been totally betrayed by Network Rail who admit that these jobs still need doing but have not lifted a finger to keep these men and women in work.
“In yet another twist of the knife, Network Rail, and the contractor Babcock Rail who are picking up some of the Jarvis work, have said that in their view the Transfer of Undertakings (TUPE) regulations, that protect pay and conditions and length of service, will not apply to any workers they might re-engage. That is a scandal.
“While the election focuses on personalities and talk of deals to keep politicians in high paid positions after May 6th, the jobs carnage on Britain’s railways continues and is wrecking the lives of key staff that we need to keep the network safe.
“We are backing the Justice 4 Jarvis Workers campaign and the lobby on Wednesday and are challenging the politicians in the areas hit by these 1200 jobs cuts to cut the spin and the rhetoric and to join the fight to save these workers and their livelihoods.”
