Train Drivers Shocked by Urine Bag Proposal

The Dutch railways have proposed that they will make urine bags available on trains which have no toilets. People who are in need can obtain these bags and isolate themselves in the one driver cabin which isn’t in use when the driver sits in the other one. Wim Eilert of the Trade Union of Train Personnel (VVMC) initially thought it was a joke. He now says that the plan has not been discussed with the drivers and it is inconceivable that drivers’ cabins where these people work become toilets.
