The Committee of Heriot-Watt UCU branch recognises the essential work of all those work on the trains across the UK. We thank them for their exceptional work during the pandemic, and note with some dismay, these efforts have been met with below inflation pay, threats to jobs and threats to terms and conditions.
We stand in full solidarity with the members of the National Union of Rail, Maritime and Transport Workers who are taking part in strike action and call up on the employers and Government Ministers to enter into meaningful negotiations with the trade union to preserve jobs, ensure decent pay and safe working conditions.
RMT National Dispute Fund
You can donate to the RMT hardship fund, which helps striking members who are taking part in the dispute, via PayPal, cheque, or credit card.
