| NSSN 463
December 3, 2019
We headline this week’s NSSN bulletin with two strikes by RMT members to maintain the safety critical role of the guard – On West Midlands Trains and South Western Railway.
The RMT has fought this attack over the last few years on a whole number of train companies. The NSSN gives the union and its members our full support.
It won’t be lost on RMT members that the Tories have announced their plan to introduce new anti-union legislation, specifically for the rail industry, if elected. At the same time, Jeremy Corbyn has promised to repeal Tory anti-union laws, including the Trade Union Act as well as pledging to re-nationalise the railways.
