RMT condemns the invasion of Ukraine by Russian forces

Dear Colleagues


A recent Special Meeting of the NEC agreed the following statement regarding theinvasion of Ukraine.

“RMT condemns the invasion of Ukraine by Russian forces and calls for their immediate withdrawal. It is workers and their communities and families who suffer from military conflict and we will do all we can to support humanitarian assistance for displaced people from Ukraine and all those that need it.

We welcome refugees seeking to come to the UK.

As trade unionists we oppose war and support peace and cross border solidarity between workers and alongside the global trade union movement we call for a long-lasting negotiated solution through diplomacy and de-militarisation that guarantees security and peace for all in the region.”

Yours sincerely

Michael Lynch

General Secretary
