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.

You will be aware that we are still in dispute with ISS over their plans to impose a Biometric Fingerprinting system to book on for duty. We had reached agreement that the company would allow the old booking on system for two weeks while we continued to talk. These talks have unfortunately failed to reach agreement.

This is the speech I gave to TUC Disabled Workers' Conference on 28 May.
Many of you will have your own experiences of both the freedom provided by public transport and the difficulty using it – be that the railway, buses, shipping, air travel, trams, riverboats, taxis, or other modes of transport.
Let’s look at some statistics and facts – mainly about the railways.
In a 2013 survey of disabled people, nearly 80% used the railways, half of them at least monthly, often weekly or more.
