Building an RMT Young Members' group in London Transport

The London Transport region of the RMT recently held a training day for young members who want to become more active in the union. A Young Members' group has been setup and a Regional Young Members' officer has been elected.

The Young Members' group wishes to inspire members of the RMT under 30 to become more actively involved in the union. We have already started this by visiting depots and other workplaces, asking various young members what would get them involved in the union. Because of this activity some young members are becoming active for the first time.
