Mobilise for Joint Union protests for Public Ownership on 31st March

Wednesday 18th March 2015

Circular No. National Policy NP/043/15/BO

To the Secretary all Branches,
Council of Executive members,
Regional Councils and Regional Offices.

Dear Colleagues,

Mobilise for Joint Union protests for Public Ownership on 31st March

RMT has always believed in a railway that puts people before profit. We want the UK government to replace the current fragmented system with a publicly owned railway that operates as a coherent whole. The case for public ownership is overwhelming and supported by the public and that is the message we want to drive home in the run up to the General Election.
On Tuesday 31st March from 7.30am to 9.00am the following stations have been organised by the RMT to date:
Bristol                                 Cardiff                   Reading                        Paddington
Kings Cross                         Euston                  Norwich                        Watford
Edinburgh Haymarket      Brighton                Three Bridges               Chatham
Glasgow Queen St             Salisbury              Southampton               Portsmouth
Birmingham New St        Nottingham       Birmingham Snow Hill     Burton on Trent
East Croydon                     Barking               London Bridge        Edinburgh Waverley Waterloo                           Glasgow Central        Dover

A number of other stations in the North West, Yorkshire and Humberside and Northern regions will also be targeted as part of the ongoing RMT campaign on the Northern and TransPennine Franchises (for which a separate circular will shortly be issued)
We want this action to send a loud and clear message to all politicians before the election.

Please mobilise all your members to attend at one of these stations to ensure we have a large, visible and colourful RMT message for the media and the public on the day.

Thanking you in anticipation

Yours sincerely,

Mick Cash
General Secretary
