Meetings and events

Report: TUC Disabled Workers' Committee, 14 October 2021

This was the first full meeting of the committee elected in March. It elected Dave Allan as chair (a formality as he is the disabled workers’ representative on the TUC General Council); and Annie Galpin as co-chair.

Implementing Disabled Workers’ Conference decisions

TUC staff presented proposals for carrying out the policies passed by this year’s Disabled Workers’ Conference. As this took place seven months ago, they had started some of the work already. This includes:

TUC meeting: London Demands Better

London Demands Better - TUC Meeting - Monday 13 June 2022, 6.30 - 8.00pm 

  • The meeting date is 13th of June, there is also a march (which the graphic and attachment refers to) on 18th June. Details here.

Unions demand an urgent response to the cost-of-living crisis - The cost-of-living crisis is raging. But don't just get angry - get organised!  

Join our demo: fight the job cuts

On the day that the Elizabeth Line opens to the public, join our demo on the corner of New Oxford St and Charing Cross Road.

On Tuesday, the Elizabeth line finally opens and the world will be told how great transport in London is. But thousands of jobs (600 on tube stations alone) are under threat from Tory cuts to transport funding in London.

A pensions grab is underway and working agreements are being torn up. Fewer staff, knackered staff, poorer service; this is ‘managed decline’ the Mayor speaks of.

Britain Needs a Pay Rise

SUBJECT: Save the Date: TUC National Demo - 'Britain Needs a Pay Rise' - Saturday 18 June

Dear Colleagues

The TUC is organising a National Demo on Saturday 18th June in London starting at 12pm with the key message that 'Britain Needs a Pay Rise'. Transport workers are essential workers and as the cost-of-living soars our Union needs to send a clear message to the Government and bosses that our members deserve a decent pay rise.

Join the demo: Cost of living crisis and justice for P&O workers

Dear colleague

Cost of living crisis and justice for P&O workers - demonstrations on 2nd April 2022

As inflation continues to rise, energy prices soar and wages are held down the cost of living crisis escalates. Big companies are continuing to rake in profits while piling misery onto working people as consumers and workers. The disgraceful illegal sacking of our members at P&O Ferries by the multinational logistics firm DP World is part of that attack.

P&O protest at parent company HO

RMT will protest outside the London headquarters of P&O’s parent company DP World tomorrow, 18 March, at 16:00. 

The protest follows P&O’s summary dismissal of 800 workers and forms part of a national day of action that will also see protests in Hull, Dover, and Liverpool. 

DP World is a multibillion pound multinational which has seen huge increases in its revenue. It made $1.3 billion profit in 2021, up 19% on the previous year.

Join us at 16 Palace Street, SW1E 5JQ to demand reinstatement for the P&O workers.
