RMT out in force at the national MOD Gaelic Festival in Oban this weekend in fight to save lifeline ferry services.
RMT officials, activists and representatives will be out in force in Oban at the national MOD festival this Saturday (17thOctober) as the union continues to fight any attempt to place lifeline Calmac ferry services in the hands of the profiteering spivs and speculators of Serco.
RMT activists will be handing out badges and stickers as well as postcards for members of the public to complete and return via freepost to their MSP with the clear message "Keep Calmac Public".
The union will have a lively presence at the pier in the town as well as in the square and other town centre locations from around 10am onwards as RMT continues to build broad support amongst communities across Scotland to keep public services under public control.
RMT General Secretary Mick Cash said;
"RMT is working with politicians and communities across Scotland as we fight to keep Calmac out of the claws of SERCO and firmly in public hands.
"This weekends events in Oban are part of a national campaign that is drawing in widespread support and which those in political power will simply not be able to ignore."
