Dear Colleagues 

A  New Message to RMT members from the campaign for Jeremy Corbyn to be Leader of the Labour Party

Please find enclosed a message from Jeremy Corbyn 

Dear Colleague 

I am really grateful for the support of RMT members. Working together with thousands of trade union members we can win this campaign for a better Labour Party that fights for the interests of the working class. 

You can support my campaign for fairness and justice by 

·        Signing my petition to oppose attacks to children's tax credits

·        Get a vote on whether I should be Labour Leader by signing up as a registered supporter (cost just £3). To become a registered supporter text go to

Thanks for all your support. Together we can win.

In solidarity

Jeremy Corbyn




Note for RMT members from RMT General Secretary Mick Cash

Your Union's Annual General Meeting unanimously passed the following motion:

This union welcomes and supports Jeremy Corbyn's campaign to be elected Leader of the Labour Party. We believe that with Jeremy as Leader, Labour would attract back much of the working-class support it has lost, and that his campaign enables us to show the popularity and importance of policies such as public ownership of public transport, repeal of the anti-union laws and opposition to austerity.  We further note Jeremy's longstanding support of this union, our Parliamentary Group, and our campaigns and disputes. We resolve to mobilise as much support as possible for his Leadership bid.

Whilst I would emphasize that it remains union policy not to affiliate to any political party, including the Labour Party, we are supporting Jeremy because he is campaigning against austerity and because he has always supported the RMT.  It is clearly in the interests of RMT members and society as a whole that Jeremy is successful in his campaign. Please do what you can to support him

Yours sincerely,

Mick Cash
General Secretary
