About us

Welcome to Britain's largest specialist transport trade union

RMT is a progressive, democratic and highly professional trade union, a fast growing union with more than 80,000 members from almost every sector of the transport industry - from the mainline and underground railways, shipping and offshore, buses and road freight.

Protecting and bettering our members' pay and conditions is the key RMT objective. We negotiate with over 150 transport-sector companies - using every opportunity to drive home our positive agenda for better pay, shorter hours and safer working conditions.

RMT members can rely on their union to protect and promote their interests in the workplace.

RMT also offers a comprehensive range of services, keeping members up to date with industry developments through the full-colour monthly RMT News, a host of newsletters, RMTv and this website.
