Paul Robeson - a celebration of his life and work

PAUL ROBESON - A CELEBRATION OF HIS LIFE AND WORK

Our Black and Ethnic Minority Members' Conference this year passed a resolution calling for an event during Black History Month to mark the 40th anniversary of the passing of the revolutionary Paul Robeson.  Such an event should be “dedicated to educate our members on the history of the role of Robeson and members of the NUR/RMT in the Spanish war against facism.”  

Brother Leon Brumant

It's a sad loss to lose any lives, but so much sadder when it's a young life.

Recently, Leon Brumant attended the RMT's National Black and Ethnic Minority Members conference in Manchester. His inquisitive nature and thirst for knowledge, made his enthusiasm infectious.

Tube Job Cut Plans Will Hit Every Equalities Group

Fit For the Future – Stations will hit every stations worker with pay cuts, displacements, reduced work-life balance, etc. But its proposals will affect women, black and ethnic minority, LGBT, older, younger and disabled people in specific ways.

LU is obliged by law to assess what the impact on equalities groups will be. But LU has carried out a shabby and inadequate assessment. RMT and other unions’ reps have met LU about these issues in the last few weeks; management has revealed that it does not treat its obligation towards equalities groups seriously.
