At our latest online meeting, RMT activists discussed their experience of rank and file organising, including the difficulties of the pandemic and internal union conflict.
The RMT has a reputation as one of the most militant, and effective, unions under the umbrella of the TUC. Yet recently it is the union’s internal politics, rather than its industrial muscle, which has come under the spotlight.
Rank and file rail workers and RMT activists Daniel Randall and Andy Littlechild talked about their experiences of rank and file organising, despite the impact of recent events, and the kind of unions that we need to build and fight for not just on the railways but across the movement.
