RMT union leader Mick Lynch has given his backing to the GB News Don't Kill Cash campaign.
Giving his support to our bid to protect the future of Britain's physical currency, the trade unionist warned of the dangers if the UK ditches rail ticket offices across the country, with train passengers forced instead to pay for their journeys digitally or on unmanned card machines.
Lynch revealed he was "absolutely" behind the GB News campaign, adding: "We don't want cash to go out.
The general secretary of the National Union of Rail, Maritime and Transport Workers continued: "It becomes more and more difficult for those on low budgets, for instance, who use cash as a means of controlling their weekly and monthly spend.
"Because if you take a fixed amount of money and budget to that it means you're in control, to some extent, of your life.
"And if you're just doing it on the card or some kind of tap method you can quickly run out of control of your life."
The 61-year-old, who spoke with GB News' Patrick Christys, also addressed new plans to close hundreds of ticket offices at train stations across the country.
Lynch said: "Most stations will have no staff in attendance whatsoever.
