Dear colleague

The union has also produced its own campaigning document, making the case for staff to be at the heart of a fully funded and rebuilt public transport system in London. In ‘A Future for Public Transport in London’, we set out not only the cost of cutting jobs before the crisis but also how more and better jobs are essential to rebuilding London’s public transport after the crisis.

You can read our document here: https://www.rmt.org.uk/news/publications/a-future-for-public-transport-in-london-rmt/

I recently wrote to all London MPs, Assembly Members and all London Councillors, sending them a copy of this document. Copies were also submitted to the Government and to TfL’s own review of its financial sustainability.

We are working to build a coalition of support across the capital and build our workplace membership so that we can win the case for full funding of TfL and fight against austerity with every weapon at our disposal.
