Cost of Living Crisis: Join protests across Britain

Dear colleague,

Cost of Living Crisis: Join protests across Britain called by the People's Assembly, Saturday 12 February

Inflation is soaring, eating into the value of your wages. The energy companies are protecting their dividends by raising household bills by 50%. Our double-talking government says it wants to see wages go up while it slams a pay freeze on the railways and other public services and hamstrings unions from organising effectively. People are anxious and angry and this should be turned into action.

The People's Assembly, to which we are affiliated, has called protests in more than 20 cities and towns across Britain this weekend. RMT will fight the pay freezes for our members industrially, as we've always done. But we also need to build a wide, united response to the cost-of-living crisis among all working people, because this is not an inevitability. It is the consequence of a rigged system that must be challenged and changed. But it won't be unless we are organised and active.

I would urge all members to turn out and support these protests across Britain. Check the People's Assembly website to find your nearest protest here:

Yours sincerely,

Michael Lynch
General Secretary
