this man showed compassion to a defenceless animal in danger......he should be commended for his act of kindness not ridiculed. there is not enough compassion in the world today. allow this man back to do his job.
Definately signed this one good luck tom. as an ex employee with southern i know how harsh they can be. i was dismissed back in 2004 for the littlest of things that was a clear misunderstanding. many praises to you. Its folk like yourself that givea us hope on the railways. good luck
Please Tom did a very kind act. Saving a life. Dont take his job away.
My greatuncle worked for the Chicago and Northwester railroad and also worked for George Patton during WWII. He would not approve of any action against someone for humanitarian actions!
Awesome job Tom, we need more people in this world like you. If he gets sacked, SHAME ON SOUTHERN RAIL. The health and safety department and Southern Rail should be proud to have Tom as an employee. Give Tom a bonus!
FRANKLY BONKERS THAT IT EVEN COMES TO THIS HEARING FOR SOMEONE JUST DOING WHAT ANY NORMAL HUMAN BEING WOULD OR SHOULD DO. BUREAUCRACY AND RED TAPE MONEY AND TIME WASTERS.
The time and money this person has done as well as damage limitation to the company reputation should be respected. If a train had hit any dog. the cost of delay, damage to the train and the money paid out to driver, PLUS the life of the dog itself. If the employee followed the Correct Procedure for entering the track environment then this is a most Callous attempt to rid the man of his job.
He should have a medal for this!
Compassion should be praised, not punished.
I think Southern Rail will give him an award. Won't you Southern Rail? Good job TOM. Please let us all know how this turns out. Thanks
