Out with Outsourcing: Outsourced Workers’ Fight for Fairness, 17 July

As you know, RMT is stepping up its campaigning against outsourcing on the railways. Right across the network and on London Underground, RMT is taking on the fight for pay justice and making the case for bringing workers back in house. We are also showing solidarity with outsourced workers in other industries.

On 17 July, I will be speaking at a campaign meeting in Parliament titled ‘Outsourced Workers Fight for Fairness’, organised by the Trade Union Coordinating Group, of which RMT is a supporter.

Alongside me will be Shadow Chancellor John McDonnell, Shadow Secretary of State for BEIS, Rebecca Long-Bailey, PCS General Secretary Mark Serwotka and NAPO General Secretary Ian Lawrence, together with striking outsourced workers at BEIS.

The fight for justice for outsourced workers and for an end to outsourcing is escalating. I would encourage you to get involved and help make this rally a great staging post in our growing campaign. Bring this circular and the meeting to the attention of your members.
