Dear Colleague


I wanted to send a reminder that the Union affiliates to the Labour Research Department (LRD) – an organisation dedicated to publishing vital information and research of use to trade unionists and employee reps.

In addition to affiliating, we also separately pay for access to a number of LRD products – including their online services.

As part of which, all RMT members are entitled to read and download every LRD booklet and magazine. The content, which is fully searchable and includes both current and back issues, can be accessed at where you can use the login details below.

The logon details are:
username: rmt
password: pot427

I am also encouraging all branches to affiliate to LRD as affiliation gives the best value access to LRD's services. Affiliation includes the following:-

Subscription to Labour Research magazine
Subscription to LRD booklets
Discounts on subscriptions to other LRD publications
Discounts on one off purchases of LRD publications
New affiliates also receive a free copy of the four latest LRD booklets

Details on how your branch can affiliate to LRD can be found here:

Yours sincerely

Michael Lynch
General Secretary
