13th March 2023

To: The Secretary




Dear Colleague,




I write in relation to the Tube strike on 15th March and Train Operating Company strike on 16th and 18th March 2023.


Reporting incidents to RMT

Please notify me at if you become aware of any dangerous incidents caused by employers use of contingency staff during this period of industrial action – whether this be in the run up to the strike action, during the strike action or subsequently. 


When you write please provide as much relevant information as possible, including:

  • details on what happened (train numbers, time, route, photographs if you have them) 
  • where it happened
  • who it involved, and 
  • when it took place.


The RMT will use this information to contact ORR and for press and campaigning work. 


It is important that we continue to apply the pressure on both employers and ORR in respect to the tactic’s employers deploy to break our strike action. We can only do this with your assistance, so please keep sending us information to


Yours sincerely



Michael Lynch

General Secretary
