Wednesday 24th September 2014

Head Office Circular No. NP/186/14

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

Dear Colleagues,

TUC and STUC Mass Demonstration’s – 18th October

On October 18th the TUC is organising a mass demonstration in London under the banner of ‘Britain needs a Pay Rise’ and the STUC is organising one in Glasgow under the banner ‘A Just Scotland’. RMT will be participating fully in both these event’s, as part of our wider strategy of opposing austerity, poverty pay and the cuts.

It is essential that the RMT contingent is as large as possible in order to demonstrate the seriousness of our opposition to Government plans to further cut pay, welfare, terms and conditions, trade union rights and pensions, alongside the vital public services we all use.

Please claim this date in your diary, and urge your fellow trade unionists, trades councils, family and friends to attend. The Trade Unions fight is our fight so let’s mobilise for the day. Bring Branch banners, flags and whistles.
Meet on the Embankment, near Blackfriars, in London from 11.00 am onwards ready to march to Hyde Park.
Muster in Glasgow at Glasgow Green from 10am onwards before marching to George Square
For more information on the arrangements for the RMT contingent on the day visit the RMT website or contact Bob Oram on b.oram@rmt.org.uk.

Yours sincerely,
Mick Cash
General Secretary
