Union news

RMT and Labour

The RMT transport union has decided not to formally re-affiliate to the Labour Party, following a consultation with members and branches. 

The union ended its affiliation in 2004 after a row about some of its branches backing other political parties.

General secretary Mick Cash said the views coming out of the consultation were “finely balanced” and that the union might re-affiliate at a future date if support for this became clearer.
