Staff Our Stations meeting

Staff our Stations - RMT Regional Campaign Meetings - Register Now!

To: All RMT Station Grades members in rail, London Underground and metro

Dear Colleague,

Your Union has long campaigned against attempts by Government and train companies to cut station staffing, close ticket offices and casualise the workforce under the Staff our Stations campaign. Whilst the threats to station grades, of course, pre-date Covid-19, it is clear that Government and companies are attempting to use the pandemic to attack station grades jobs, pay and conditions.

UN anti-racism day: defend the right to protest

Dear Colleague,

UN ANTI-RACISM DAY, SATURDAY 20 MARCH - DEFEND THE RIGHT TO PROTEST

The UN Anti-Racism Day of action this Saturday 20 March comes in the wake of the shocking events of the last few days.

The police response to the Clapham Common vigil for Sarah Everard - and now a new policing bill - are signs that the government is using the Covid19 crisis to attack the right to peaceful protest.

Meeting called for RMT women to discuss women's safety

The death of Sarah Everard and subsequent murder charge against serving Met Police officer Wayne Couzens has brought the issue of women's safety into sharp focus. This issue very much affects women in public transport, both as passengers and specifically as workers.

It is important that RMT London Transport Region takes up this issue in the way that its women members want it to.

The recent TfL financial review has made it clear to all London Underground members that we are all going to have to fight hard for our jobs, terms and conditions, pensions and benefits. The government, the Mayor’s office and London Underground management are determined that the financial burden of the COVID 19 crisis will fall on London’s workers in general and on London Underground staff in particular.
