Following a vote unanimous vote in favour of strike action, RMT has now secured agreements covering harmonisation, pay, shift allowances and Olympics payments of up to £680.

“It is a tribute to both RMT’s members and their representatives and sends out a signal to the working class that if you organise in a strong and militant trade union you can turn the tide on austerity and secure real breakthroughs on pay and conditions.”
