rmt-logo.jpg
March for Bob - National RMT Mobilisation for May Day, London, Thursday 1st May 2014

This year's May Day March will be one of the first occasions for us all to honour the memory of Bob - and continue the campaign for trade union and workers' rights.

The march will led by the RMT Brass Band and followed by RMT banners. (Bob's Branch Banner, LU Engineering, followed by his region, the London Transport Regional Council, will head up the RMT banners).

We are hoping that as many members as possible (including families and friends) can attend. People who can make it are invited to assemble at Clerkenwell Green (closest station is Farringdon) from 11.00am with the march moving off at 1pm towards Trafalgar Square. (This is where the Rally will take place - starting at around 2:30pm).

I look forward to welcoming you on the day, sharing memories of Bob, honouring him and together demonstrating our determination to see that his legacy of tirelessly fighting and winning on behalf of working people persists.

Yours sincerely,

Mick Cash
Acting General Secretary
