Network Rail sparks furore for ‘removing terms like pilot and banker in favor of gender-neutral language’
- Network Rail reportedly instructed staff to sign a form acknowledging the new rules
- But the staff hit back, slamming the new language as “crazy crazy.”
Network Rail has been criticized for ‘virtue signaling’ for allegedly introducing job titles and phrases in gender-neutral language for its staff.
The railway company reportedly instructed staff to sign a form confirming that it would observe new gender-neutral terms, such as “manually controlled level crossing” instead of “crewed level crossing”.
But a source said Sun the new rules made the company look like a ‘laughing stock’ and branded them ‘crazed wokery’.
Staff have also reportedly been told to use gender-neutral terms such as “traffic chief” instead of “banker” and “pilot” instead of “pilot”.
The source told the Sun: ‘These changes are from a long list of demands concocted by higher-ups to be more in line with the times.
The railway company reportedly instructed staff to sign a form to confirm that they would observe new gender-neutral terms such as “manually controlled level crossing” instead of “manned level crossing”.
But we seem more like a laughingstock. They should limit themselves to improving services instead of pointing out virtues. He has gone crazy.
