Mick Cash elected as RMT General Secretary for second term

Business as usual following re-election of Mick Cash as RMT steps up fight on all fronts

MICK CASH, re-elected as General Secretary of specialist transport union RMT last night for a further five year term, said that it is business as usual today as the union unites and steps up the fight for workplace justice in a wide range of ongoing dispute.

RMT General Secretary Mick Cash said;

“The election for general secretary is done and this union is now wholly focussed on our industrial and political campaigning strategy for the next five years as we seek to extend and defend our members working conditions, jobs, pay and pensions in every sector where we organise.

“My message to the employers is simple, this trade union will leave no one behind in the pursuit of workplace justice and we will stand and fight wherever that principle comes under attack.

“We have made huge strides over the past five years and as the list of on-going disputes shows very clearly we are united moving forwards as a militant, democratic and campaigning trade union that is all about fighting and winning.”
