A Chance to Get Active

OK, OK - I know that very few readers will get any further than the banner at the top of this wee posting.

BUT - just in case any of you feels that the recent activities by employers such as BA in running squealing to the high court on the flimsiest of legal technicalities the moment their workforce votes to take action might be a tad on the unfair side, read on...

There is something you can do which will take only a minute or two of your time.

"...John McDonnell MP has introduced a Lawful Industrial Action (Minor Amendments) Bill to prevent anti-union employers blocking the democratic wishes of trade union members who have voted overwhelmingly in favour of industrial action.

For the Bill to progress to the next stage, 100 MPs need to attend Parliament for its "Second Reading” on Friday 22nd October. MPs are usually in their constituencies on Fridays so RMT members need to contact their MPs to ask them to be present in Parliament. Please take just a few minutes now to lobby your MP online to support the Bill by following this link http://www.unitedcampaign.org.uk/bill.php (don’t worry if you’re not sure who your MP is, simple enter your postcode and it will do the rest)."

Go on, you know you want to - thats http://www.unitedcampaign.org.uk/bill.php
