Bobby Morton, Acting National Passenger Officer for Unite, wrote: “On behalf of Unite the Union I wish to offer my heartfelt thanks to all of you who sent messages of support through LabourStart to the London bus workers who achieved a great victory in the Olympic solidarity campaign. I am convinced that if there was a gold medal for solidarity you would all be recipients. Thanks also to the International Transport Workers’ Federation, ITF, for their unstinting support and efforts during this campaign.” You can read the ITF's own statement here.
Unfortunately, not all workers are covered by this very important victory.
The cleaners who work for London Transport, and who are represented by the RMT union, have not received any bonus.
Their campaign needs a big push from all of us -- please sign up and spread the word: http://www.labourstart.org/rmtcleaners
