Thursday 03rd March 2016

Circular No. National Policy NP/081/16/MC

To the Secretary all Branches & Regional Councils

Dear Colleagues,

Defend Rail Jobs in the North – speakers announced

I am writing to invite you to the first of a series of events in the North of England in opposition to the cuts programme, attacks on supervisory and clerical jobs, the introduction of Driver Only Operation and increased casualization arising from the re-franchising processes. This will take place in the Mechanics Institute, Manchester at 18.00 on 31st March.

Facilitating participation of members in the rally is a legitimate use of branch funds.

I will be speaking alongside:
•    Lynn Collins, Regional Secretary, North West TUC
•    Bill Adams, Regional Secretary, Yorks & Humber TUC (chair)
•    Shadow Rail Minister Andy McDonald MP & Lisa Nandy MP
•    Mick Whelan, Aslef and Steve Coe, TSSA

Please bring this circular to the attention of your members and work to ensure maximum turnout.

Yours sincerely,


Mick Cash
General Secretary
