Workers' self-defence starts with getting unionised at work. This section includes material on the trade union struggles and issues I am involved in and/or urge you to support!

Disability Officer's Report to RMT London Transport Regional Council, August 2015

1. Protesting against attacks on disabled people. The Tories are intensifying their assault on disabled people's rights, particularly access to benefits. I will be circulating information about protests and other events in and around London. Please look out for these and encourage members to take part.

The Gaoler and the Giant

Written in response to today's tabling of new anti-union laws ...

Said the gaoler to the sleeping giant
Your ties aren't tight enough
These bonds are very slightly pliant
You need a tougher cuff

Said the sleeping giant to the gaoler
There really is no need
For years I've lain here getting frailer
I've lost the will to leave

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!
