What people are saying about sick pay at Network Rail

  • Best thing

    Free reign to get on with my workload without management breathing down my neck. Proper Breaks, reasonable Wage, good training.

    Worst thing

    Head office haven't got a clue how the front line works and make decisions that massively affect our jobs and hinder us from doing it.


    Network Rail Employee, January 2022

    Having a 60 week rota and regular breaks agreed with management

    Worst thing
