RMT / Action for Rail TUC and Labour Party Fringe Events in
Liverpool and Manchester – “Can Labour deliver radical rail reform?”
Members are invited to attend the following meetings which will discuss how a future Labour government will respond to continued strong public support for renationalisation of the network. It forms part of our continued lobbying efforts ahead of next year’s general election and ongoing campaign against the McNulty cuts as demonstrated by the latest proposals for Northern Rail and TransPennine Express.
Refreshments will be provided at both events which are hosted by Action for Rail - of which RMT is a part.
