Dear Colleagues,

 

Trade Union Freedom

As you may be aware Transport Secretary, Patrick McLoughlin, proposed anti-trade union legislation, which he claims will be included in the Tory election manifesto, in an article in the Telegraph on 9th January.

 

The proposals include:

  • a minimum of 40% of all eligible voters casting their ballot will be necessary to take industrial action across so-called essential services.
  • ending the ban on companies using agency staff to scab on industrial action
  • putting an end to rolling mandates
  • conduct a review into minimum service levels

 

RMT will be doing all in its power to fight these proposals including working with other unions and the Campaign for Trade Union Freedom.

 

One action you can take today is to petition the ILO to defend the right to strike by following this link: http://www.itfglobal.org/en/campaigns-solidarity/campaigns/defend-the-right-to-strike/

 

Yours sincerely,
