RMT General Secretary on rail dispute

21 June 2022

RMT Press Office:

Commenting on today’s first rail strike since 1989, RMT general secretary Mick Lynch said:

“Today’s turnout at picket lines has been fantastic and exceeded expectations in our struggle for job security, defending conditions and a decent pay rise.

“Our members will continue the campaign and have shown outstanding unity in pursuit of a settlement to this dispute.

“RMT members are leading the way for all workers in this country who are sick and tired of having their pay and conditions slashed by a mixture of big business profits and government policy 

“Now is the time to stand up and fight for every single railway worker in this dispute that we will win.”



Notes: RMT is meeting Network Rail and the Train Operating Companies for talks tomorrow.
