Pre-Strike Online Rally

Dear colleague,

TOC, Network Rail, LUL & London Overground - RMT Pre-Strike Online Rally

Wednesday 17th August from 6pm

As RMT members at the TOCs and Network Rail prepare to take further strike action on 18th and 20th August and members at London Underground and London Overground on the 19th August, please join General Secretary Mick Lynch and the rest of the Union's leadership at an online rally on Wednesday 17th August at 6pm in support of the Union's campaigns to defend jobs, pay and conditions.

TfL have plans to cut 600 jobs and want to rob RMT members of their pension entitlements.

Despite the best efforts of our negotiators no viable settlements to the disputes have been created. It has to be re-stated that the source of these disputes is the decision by the Tory Government to cut £4bn of funding from our transport systems - £2bn from national rail and £2bn from Transport for London.
