Dear Colleague,



2ND JUNE 2023


With regards to the RMT industrial action on 2nd June 2023 please notify me at if you become aware of any dangerous incidents caused by employers use of contingency staff on this day. 


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. Please let us know if you don’t want the information used for such purposes - as we can still use of it, for example, for internal union purposes (such as forming a national picture of employers strike breaking activities).


Thanks to those of you who have sent in information previously. This information was sent to ORR and I have held several meetings with them to discuss.  We have also used this information (in anonymised form) on media outlets.  


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
