  • Save London’s public transport: stop job cuts, attacks on working conditions and fare hikes
    Ordinary Londoners did the right thing during lockdown and stayed home, but this has led to spending on fares for London’s public transport drying up. London’ transport system is too dependent on passenger fares, far more so than most global cities, where government plays its part. The government is now grudgingly offering extra funding, but that support looks set to come with disastrous strings attached - strings that will be bad for anyone who works or travels on London’s public transport. But our public transport system is vital to getting Londoners moving after the pandemic. It’s vital to the national recovery from Covid, and it’s vital to creating a sustainable, green future. If you believe that London’s commuters and key workers deserve a world-class public transport system - not job cuts, attacks on conditions of employment and fare hikes - then sign the petition now.

  • Write to the VC: £10 an hour for key worker cleaners at the University of Sheffield
    Throughout the pandemic, cleaning staff at the University of Sheffield have worked hard to keep others safe. They work unsociable hours, are overwhelmingly women workers and have no path to improved pay on the current university pay scale. Now, with the support of Unite the Union, these key workers are organising to improve their pay and conditions. But they'll need your support to win. Can you write to the Vice-Chancellor, demanding he pay these key workers a living wage?

  • Support your local bus workers
    Stagecoach has had taxpayer support of nearly £300 million during the COVID pandemic and made £32 million in profits from bus operations. Hundreds of bus workers are leaving the industry because they can earn better wages elsewhere. This exodus of staff threatens lifeline bus services if Stagecoach don't face up to reality. RMT Stagecoach staff provide vital services to our local communities. All our members are asking for is fair pay that recognises their hard work. Professional staff deserve professional wages.

  • Reverse the cut to Universal Credit
    The £20 a week uplift has been a lifeline to many people throughout the pandemic, predominantly going towards topping up low wages in the city; further that despite York having one of the highest employment rates in the country, wages are unjustifiably low and people are struggling; and further that, at a time where the cost of living is shooting up and upcoming tax increases are being implemented by the Government, it is becoming increasingly difficult for people to pay their bills, buy food, or heat their homes.

  • PFI BLEEDS THE NHS DRY
    PFI BLEEDS THE NHS DRY, TIME’S UP FOR PFI PROFITEERS! Unison Lanarkshire Health Branch has launched a campaign to bring private contracts within NHS Lanarkshire back in house into public ownership. The campaign aims to end the private Serco and ISS contracts within NHS Lanarkshire; which provides catering, portering, domestic and security services at Hairmyres and Wishaw Hospitals back in house to put an end to a two-tier workforce. Once brought back in-house it will allow all NHS Lanarkshire workers at these sites to be employed on equal terms and conditions. Bringing these contracts back in house will also put an end to profit-motivated contractors providing public services at the public’s expense. Unison has produced a letter which we have directly mailed to all Lanarkshire Councillors, MSPs and MPs asking them to support our campaign to bring the staff back in-house where they belong. Let's be clear, PFI contracts are bleeding NHS Lanarkshire and its time to put a stop to private profiteers draining OUR National Health Service. Support our campaign and sign our petition! You can also get more involved in the campaign by: Phone: 01698 754333 Email: [email protected]

  • Send a message: Fair pay for scientists now!
    Throughout the pandemic, biomedical scientists have been on the frontline of our NHS, analysing patient blood samples and carrying out covid-19 testing. The workers, who have been on strike since May, are owed staggering amounts of back pay. That starts at several hundred pounds up to as much as £8,000, after managers failed to honour a 2019 agreement to upgrade their pay. Send a message to Interim Chief Executive at East Lancashire Hospitals NHS Trust, Martin Hodgson, demanding he meet with Unite and settle this unnecessary dispute as soon as possible.

  • Stop the cuts to ScotRail services
    Failed ScotRail operator Abellio is currently consulting on proposals to slash ScotRail services by around 300 a day, or 100,000 a year. That's a cut of around 12% compared to pre-pandemic levels. Abellio is consulting on the proposed timetable from May 2022, despite the fact that it will not even be operating the franchise by then, as ScotRail is coming into public ownership from 1 April 2022. As Scotland gears up to host COP26 in Glasgow in just a matter of weeks, RMT believes it is unfathomable that the Scottish Government, which is already managing the franchise under its Emergency Measures Agreement, is overseeing drastic and damaging cuts to the sustainable, low carbon, rail network. This will do nothing to make Scotland a ‘Net zero nation’ and will just push more people into cars, despite the Scottish Government's goal of reducing car kilometers by 20% by 2030. It is clear these cuts will be bad for passengers and bad for Scotland's climate change goals. RMT is calling for the Scottish Government to block the proposed service cuts and instead commit to protecting all services and jobs at ScotRail.

  • Make York buses free for the duration of the COP climate talks: Keith Aspden
    Public transport is the key to decarbonising our region and fighting climate change. But our public transport system won’t be around long if we aren’t willing to fight for it. Privatised bus companies are cutting routes, and ridership is going through the floor. That’s why we’re calling on our local politicians to make bus travel free, for all of us, for the duration of the UN COP26 climate talks in Glasgow this November. The more people use and value our bus network, the harder it is for private interests to take it away from us. Show our buses some love this November, and help us fight for free bus travel during COP26.
