RMT

That National Union of Rail, Maritime and Transport Workers (UK). I have been a member since 1997, and served on the union's national executive 2011-13.

Written in support of RMT's campaign to stop the (SNP) Scottish government privatising the Caledonian MacBrayne ferry services:

Our Cally Mac's for sale
Public service coffin's nail
We'll nae let fares go skywards 
- Pirates!

Piranhas 'neath the waves
Lurk hungry in the caves
We've seen your profit figures 
- Gold diggers!

Oppose Job Cuts at WEA London

RMT's Annual General Meeting, held in Newcastle 21-25 June 2015, passed the following resolution unanimously. It was submitted by Central Line East branch and proposed by delegate Janine Booth, who is also a sessional tutor at WEA London and a Unite member.

Sonnet to a Bricked-Up Window

Oh ticket office, ticket office, why
Is your fair window really gone for good?
However much I touch or hard I try
The robot can not serve me like you could
If you had closed 'cause I don't have to pay
If transport were a public service, free
I'd no more need to use you anyway
Or miss your glazed familiarity 
But still the faceless charge a fortune fare
