Campaign for Trade Union Freedom Launch & Rally

Dear Colleagues,

Campaign for Trade Union Freedom Launch & Rally
This Saturday, 23 March 2013
1:30 – 4:30pm at Friend’s Meeting House, Euston Road, London

RMT’s support for trade union rights and freedoms is well documented, most recently through our support for the United Campaign for Trade Union Freedom.

I am pleased to confirm that on 3rd December 2012 the United Campaign for Trade Union Freedom and the Liaison Committee for the Defence of Trade Unions agreed to join forces and the Campaign for Trade Union Freedom – TUF – was born. In the best traditions of the two parent organisations, TUF will continue to fight to defend and enhance trade union rights, oppose anti-union laws and to promote collective bargaining across the UK, Europe and the world in the fight against inequality and poverty.

It is important that RMT members attend and that our union is well represented at the Launch and Rally for Trade Union Freedom on Saturday, 23 March in the Friends’ Meeting House, 173 Euston Road, London, NW1 2BJ from 1:30 until 4:30. Confirmed Speakers, to date, include myself and Billy Hayes, General Secretary, CWU. Speakers invited include, Frances O’Grady, General Secretary, TUC, Len McCluskey, General Secretary, UNITE, Dave Prentis, General Secretary, UNISON, Mark Serwotka, General Secretary, PCS, Christine Blower, General Secretary, NUT, Mick Whelan, General Secretary, ASLEF and Roger McKenzie, Assistant General Secretary, UNISON.

I hope that you will be able to join us in what will be a great event and help build the foundations of a successful future campaign. Please bring your branch banners.

Yours sincerely

Bob Crow
General Secretary
