Disabled Workers’ Conference 2014 - Resolutions

We looked at all the resolutions passed by Disabled Workers’ Conference in May. A document containing these resolutions will (eventually) be posted on the TUC website – until then, email me j.booth@rmt.org.uk if you would like me to send it to you.

Here’s a summary of what we are doing on each:

1. Zero hours contracts and disabled workers

Inaugural Festival of Trade Union Education & Organising

Hi, the above event takes place next Saturday 20th September commencing at 11.00hrs and closing at 17.00hrs, at our National Education Centre. Entrance is by ticket or RMT membership card only (licencing requirement). The event hopes to attract as many of our members, officials, reps and staff to the centre to see the facilities and opportunities the centre offers the Union. It is also being organised as a family day with entertainment for children, alongside live music all day, licenced bar (selling locally brewed ‘Bobs Brew’) barbecue and hog roast.

Neasden Branch Recruitment Day

All Neasden Reps and Activists are asked to meet in Wembley Park booking hall on Thursday 28th August at 10am for a general walkabout and recruitment day.
This event is being organised not only to recruit new members, but also to let the frontline staff who are currently in the firing line with the 'Fit For The Future' debacle, that we support them. It doesn't mater what grade you are, they are coming for all of us eventually!
Any branch member who needs to take unpaid leave on this date in order to attend will be reimbursed by Regional Council.

Members Meeting Called On Tube Cuts Dispute

A mass meeting of all London Underground members has been arranged to discuss the current situation in our campaign against LUL’s plans to cut jobs and close ticket offices. The meeting has been called to gauge the view of members which will be fed back to the union’s executive when it considers our next course of action.

The meeting will take place on Friday 22nd August 2014 at the Indian YMCA near Warren Street Station from 2pm.

RMT Issues Call For Support For Latest Demonstrations To Stop The Massacre In Gaza

TRANSPORT UNION RMT today issued a renewed call for the biggest possible turn-out in support of the next round of protests organised up and down the country by the Palestine Solidarity Campaign for an end to the massacre in Gaza.

With nearly 2000 Palestinian’s killed, 10,000 injured and schools, refuges and hospitals targeted, RMT is urging all member’s to join the protests and to ensure a massive and continuing trade union presence on the streets as the PSC campaign forces the voices of opposition into the mainstream media.

Women's Lunch Southbank Centre

The London RMT Women's Lunch will be at the Southbank centre on August 14th from 1pm until about 4pm. If it is sunny we will be sat outside on the terrace otherwise inside with an RMT flag as a tablecloth so you can see us! The Southbank centre has got a bar/cafe but you can also bring your own food and drink so we usually bring crisps and dips etc.
This is a regular monthly meeting, very relaxed and a chance to catch up with other women in your union.
