Next RMT event and first CWU national strike
First - the local RMT and TSSA have expressed their thanks to everybody who has supported their picket lines over the last week - they have said they couldn't keep the energy and high level of public support up without other union members and community activists demonstrating support publicly.
Next actions are -
RMT and community groups - Staff Our Stations! Defend our ticket offices! Tuesday 23 August 9am Berwick Station - Against so called 'modernisation' proposals to close thousands of ticket offices.
CWU - Posties Over Profits Friday 26th August 9-10am Woolmarket Sorting Office Berwick. The CWU have welcomed our support and requested that we stand on the opposite side of the street, don't block the street and remember this is a residential street. Many thanks.
Hope to see you there - solidarity, Sarah
