RMT Press Office:

Transport union RMT releases a fundraising single today by music legends Primal Scream and Dexys called Enough is Enough! in support of the union’s fight against low pay, job cuts and attacks on terms and conditions.

RMT general secretary Mick Lynch, who makes a guest appearance on the track, said that the union was extremely pleased with support from musicians like Kevin Rowland, Sean Read, Bobby Gillespie and former the Jesus and Mary Chain bassist Douglas Hart who has produced a hard-hitting video to go with the song.

 “As we go into further strike action this Saturday this sort of solidarity, which these talented musicians gave completely free of charge, is an indication of the huge support we are getting from across the country.  

“All the money from this single will go directly to our dispute fund which we are using as part of our battle for justice in the workplace.

“It’s time for the government to stop interfering and let us negotiate a settlement with the employers,” he said. 

Dexys frontman Kevin Rowland said that he was proud to stand with unions like RMT as organisations that were fighting for a fair deal for workers in the face of a cost-of-living crisis.

“It is clear to millions that something is very wrong when millionaires get ever richer while workers are told to accept poverty. 

“As we say in the song the media sets out to confuse people with lies and divide us with side issues like Brexit and culture wars while all we are really getting is endless austerity and cuts.

“We are saying Enough is Enough,” he said.
