RMT national executive election: Fight the cuts, vote for Jared Wood
Jared Wood (Click to enlarge)
Jared Wood opposes the £1 billion worth of cuts by Transport for London. He rejects shift patterns that are killing tube workers, fights for a four-day week, and also campaigns for the policy of transport union RMT - a Jeremy Corbyn-led Labour government with socialist policies.
Can you give your backing to Socialist Party member Jared in the RMT national executive committee elections? He's standing to represent the London Transport Region on the union's national executive committee.
Paul Schindler, RMT Stations and Revenue, said: "During our fit-for-the-future dispute... Jared was instrumental in delivering effective industrial action that won back over 500 jobs."
Donate to the Socialist Party
The coronavirus crisis has laid bare the class character of society in numerous ways. It is making clear to many that it is the working class that keeps society running, not the CEOs of major corporations.
The results of austerity have been graphically demonstrated as public services strain to cope with the crisis.
- The Socialist Party's material is more vital than ever, so we can continue to report from workers who are fighting for better health and safety measures, against layoffs, for adequate staffing levels, etc.
- We must be ready for the stormy events ahead and the need to arm workers' movements with a socialist programme - one which puts the health and needs of humanity before the profits of a few.
Inevitably, during the crisis we have not been able to sell the Socialist and raise funds in the ways we normally would.
We therefore urgently appeal to all our viewers to donate to our Fighting Fund.
