Speaking at the TUC in Brighton RMT General Secretary Mick Cash said;"RMT supported Jeremy Corbyn's campaign for the Labour leadership and his stunning victory in the election has catapulted the fight against austerity and the anti union laws right to the top of the political agenda.
"The speculation over RMT reaffiliation is however miles wide of the mark. That issue is not under discussion and the earliest that the matter could be raised is at our next AGM in June 2016.
"Our focus is on the fight right now against the attack on jobs, services and workers rights and RMT will work with all our allies, including Jeremy Corbyn and John McDonnell, to resist the assault on our workplaces and our communities. "
