Every working person should #JoinAUnion Some are general unions for any worker, others for a particular profession (like us) or for particular sectors (e.g. transport), or nations, or even employers. The important thing is that people join an independent trade union.

If compassion and consideration for fellow workers is now a 'left-wing cause' then we really are going to hell in a handcart.
'The NHS stands proudly with the @RMTunion'- then it should be privatized immediately. British taxpayers don't pay you to campaign for left-wing causes.

Air Con on our train wasn’t working. People were baking. Train attendant was notified, got it fixed and also gave the carriage free water. Just one small reason why trains need well paid staff available en route for our safety and why I support the @RMTunion strikes ✊🏼

Great this from @johnharris1969, @RMTunion’s Mick Lynch and @Miatsf - key point; the Tories thought, as usual, they could isolate and demonise the strikers. This time, Lynch and co have connected their fight to a much larger experience, felt country wide. open.spotify.com/episode/07Z…

Eddie Dempsey speaking in London yesterday; “If we woke up tomorrow and the billionaires were gone, there’d be no change to the running order of our daily lives. If the same happened to the workers, the country would grind to a halt. And they know it.” Victory to the @RMTunion

I have served copious amounts of tea and coffee Helped elderly/disabled passengers to light and alight trains Helped with connections for delays Helped keep people hydrated in this exceptional heat But trains don't need to be manned either, they can go without any crew 👍
