STATEMENT 1 FROM GERRY DOHERTY & BOB CROW
TSSA and RMT historically met today, 12 August 2011, to discuss the possibilities of a merged union.
A series of meetings will be held to discuss key issues and objectives recognising that both unions have separate Rule Books and traditions.
Both unions will use their own democratic structures to consult and agree with members and wish to conclude these discussions as soon as possible as industrial attacks are taking place more intensely on transport and travel workers.
The respective union negotiating teams are:
Alex Gordon, Mick Cash, Malcolm Dunning, Owen Herbert and reserve Mick Thompson
Harriet Yeo, Mitch Tovey, Manuel Cortes and Frank Ward
