Dear Colleague,


The RMT will be supporting the annual Chainmakers’ Festival in Cradley Heath on Saturday 6th July 2019. This is a family fun day that celebrates an historic strike by women chainmakers in 1910 to fight for a minimum wage.

The festival will start at 11am (Cradley Heath High Street, Sandwell B64 5HJ) with a banner parade along the high street, followed by entertainment at Mary Macarthur Gardens (B64 5AB).

Please see and circulate the flyer link below:

The RMT will have a stall and any assistance to staff this during the day would be appreciated. Do contact the Midlands Regional Office to let them know if you can help: t:0121 212 2355 or email j.watson@rmt.org.uk or dgearing@rmt.org.uk

Yours sincerely,

Mick Cash
General Secretary
