RBS Branches Closing in Clydesdale, Scottish Borders and Midlothian South

RBS Branches Closing in Clydesdale, Scottish Borders and Midlothian South

RBS must halt the proposals to close the RBS branches Clydesdale, Scottish Borders and Midlothian South at Biggar, Carnwath, Douglas, Duns, Eyemouth, Hawick, Jedburgh, Lesmahagow, Melrose, North Berwick, Penicuik, Selkirk and Strathaven.
The public bailed the Bank out and the public deserves better. RBS must engage fully with trades unions, staff, customers, communities and elected representatives, including the Scottish and UK Government, to ensure that local customers and workers are fully protected.

===================================
:This petition has been started by a politician - 38 Degrees is independent of all political parties:

Why is this important?

Not only will this have a devastating impact on the bank workers who are set to lose their jobs, these closures will also have a negative effect on the local communities of Biggar, Carnwath, Douglas, Dunns, Eyemouth, Hawick, Jedburgh, Lesmahagow, Melrose, North Berwick, Penicuik, Selkirk and Strathaven.

Those who are older, in poor health, who cannot afford to travel further afield to do their banking, or who run small businesses will be hit hardest by these branch closures.

Reasons for signing

  • Not every body has access to on line banking. Businesses need to pay in and take out cash without having to travel several miles to do so. Carrying large sums of cash is a risk to safety without having to travel many miles. I agree that public funds bailed the bank pout and R BS has a duty to look after their customers and hard working staff. Do the right thing or lose your customers to a more caring bank!
  • We need a RBS in our area!!!
  • closed my dealing with rbs and went to Santander,,far better service and benefits been with rbs for 45 yrs ashamed to say I was once a happy customer,,
