The meeting took place on the final day of our 48-hour strike on London Underground and TfL. The Committee agreed to send a message of support to RMT and TSSA, and Committee members held a brief protest (in the pouring rain!) outside Tottenham Court Road station after the meeting. Photos of the protest have been circulated widely on social media.
Please make every effort to attend the “Every Job Matters” meeting that the RMT General Secretary Bob Crow has arranged.
The meeting begins at 18.00 on Tuesday 18TH February 2014, at the Conway Hall, Red Lion Square, WC1R 4RL.

Celebrate ‘A History of Action by Women Workers.’ International Women’s Day was born out of the struggle of women in the New York City garment industry at the turn of the century and in Russia in February 1917 where their protests turned revolutionary.
The course will outline these developments at the beginning of the 20th century and consider their relevance today.
