Mick Cash launches re-election bid
RMT general secretary Mick Cash has launched his campaign for re-election.
Cash, who was elected in September 2014 following the death of Bob Crow, is running on a platform of “Let’s continue to be a fighting, campaigning, democratic and member led union.”
In a letter to members, he writes: “I am proud of our record over the past five years and what we have delivered together :
- A fighting union that defend jobs, protects and enhances our members pay and conditions.
- A campaigning union that has put safety, public ownership and investment in our transport services centre stage.
- An organising, educating union that builds on our growing membership and financial strength to ensure no one is left behind.
- A democratic and member-led union where everyone has their say and sets out the work programme and priorities.
Join with me in building on the huge strides we have made together as a united trade union over the past five years and give me the opportunity to take that work forwards in the difficult times that we know lie ahead.”
Candidates are currently seeking nominations from branches. Balloting starts at the end of June, with the result being announced at the end of August. If you are standing, please let us know at firstname.lastname@example.org.
