UK Climate demonstrations 20 September

Circular No: NP/163/19


18th September 2019

Dear Colleagues

UK Climate demonstrations 20 September

Dear colleagues, further to my Circular of 12th September 2019, at the 2019 TUC Congress, a motion was carried, entitled ‘Climate crisis and a just transition’. It drew attention to the UK Government’s recent declaration of an environmental and climate emergency.

The motion also called on the TUC to call a 30-minute workday campaign action to coincide with the global school strikes on Friday 20 September.

In light of this, branches are encouraged to organise an RMT presence at a local demonstration on 20 September.

In the UK, the global school strikes are being organised by the UK Student Climate Network, and you can find details of events in your area here -

There will be an RMT group attending the London demo. If you would like to join this group, please assemble at 10.30 at RMT Unity House to travel to Millbank, SW1P 3JA.

I would be grateful if you could bring the contents of this circular to the attention of your members.

Yours sincerely

Mick Cash
General Secretary
