Dear Colleagues,


RMT/ Action for Rail – 8am on Thursday 2nd January 2014 - Kings Cross


On 1st January rail fares will again increase while working people are taking pay cuts.


To mark this, RMT - together with the other organisations operating under the Action for Rail umbrella - will be holding a demo and leafleting Kings Cross station. This will take place on Thursday 2nd January - the first working day after the fare rise - and significant media interest is expected.


The demonstration will be highlighting that while fares are going up again, there are massive cuts taking place to railway staff jobs. And that the railways should be nationalised.


I am writing to ask for your help with the protest (in the morning rush hour) on Thursday 2nd January. And even if you cannot make it on the day, please encourage friends and family to complete the petitions available at http://actionforrail.org/


Yours sincerely,

Bob Crow
General Secretary
