Resolution: Fare Rises

This resolution, submitted by Camden 3 branch and seconded by Finsbury Park branch, was carried unanimously by the January 2011 Regional Council meeting:

This Regional Council believes the RMT should make the most of public anger around:

  • extortionate January fare rises (some prices doubled, others up 18%)
  • Oyster cards now £5
  • Abolishing intermediate zones travelcards

The campaign organised by the union should include: public leafletting, press releases, freedom of information requests on where Oyster incomplete journey charges go to, and investigating possible legal avenues for staff and passengers to pursue.
