I was proud to join the RMT union picket lines in their fight for pay, pensions, conditions and safety, and against compulsory redundancies. This is a strike against the levelling down of wages and conditions.

These workers have continued to work through the pandemic, and have had a pay freeze for 2 or 3 years, depending what employer they work for. Thousands of jobs are at now at threat. I stand in full solidarity with them.
