Blog: Whitechapel - The Tip Of The Iceberg

On Saturday 19th October, around 50 people attended a protest outside Whitechapel Underground station in protest at the plans to permanently close the ticket office when the station undergoes refurbishment as part of the Crossrail project. The protest was organised by the East Ham Branch of the RMT – I am their Branch Secretary. Members from across the country, from all grades – shipping to management – came and offered their support, handing out leaflets to the public, gathering petition signatures and making lots of noise.

DEMO- Young Members lead the way

In the spirit of revolutionary Cuba, RMT young members are spearheading an anti McNulty demo prior to the Cuba Solidarity Garden Party.

The general secretary and assistant general secretaries have all confirmed their attendance.
