Head Office Circular No. NP/130/23
To all Branches and Regional Councils
28th July 2023
KEEP TICKET OFFICES OPEN CAMPAIGN DAYS OF ACTION – 9TH AND 16TH AUGUST
Please note that these are campaign days of action, focused on distributing postcards to passengers and drawing attention to the campaign, and not any form of industrial action.
Further to my message on Wednesday 26th July, which advised that the public consultations on ticket office closure proposals have now been extended until 1st September, I am writing to advise that we have called two more days of campaign action on Wednesday 9th and Wednesday 16th August 2023.
As with the previous days of action, we are asking RMT branches, reps and members to mobilise around these dates and hold campaign actions at stations around the country.
New campaign materials are being printed, and requests for materials should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org. Materials will also be available from regional offices.
Please send locations and times for actions to email@example.com so they can be posted on the website.
In the meantime, printable materials are available from the website https://www.rmt.org.uk/campaigns/rail/save-ticket-offices/
Please continue your amazing efforts to support this vital campaign so we can get the message out there to as many people as possible and maximise responses to the public consultations.
