REPORTING INCIDENTS DURING RMT INDUSTRIAL ACTION:
With regards to forthcoming industrial action a reminder to please notify me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you become aware of any dangerous incidents caused by employers use of contingency staff during this period of industrial action – whether this be in the run up to the strike action, during the strike action or subsequently.
When you write please provide as much relevant information as possible, including:
- details on what happened (train numbers, time, route, photographs if you have them)
- where it happened
- who it involved
- when it took place.
The RMT will use this information to contact ORR and for press and campaigning work. Please let us know if you don’t want the information used for such purposes - as we can still make use of it, for example, for internal union purposes (such as forming a national picture of employers strike breaking activities).
Thanks very much to those of you who have already sent in information on incidents that took place during previous strike action. This information has been sent to ORR and I have met with ORR to discuss. Also, we have used this information (in anonymised form) on social media.
It is important that we continue to apply the pressure on both employers and ORR in respect to the tactic’s employers deploy to break our strike action. We can only do this with your assistance, so please keep sending us information to email@example.com.
