NSSN 489: Stop the BA Betrayal!
We headline this week’s NSSN bulletin with the fight by unions against the offensive by British Airways against its workers. We send our solidarity and support to these workers and the many others who are facing redundancy across the economy. The NSSN believes that workers must not pay the price for this crisis. If […]
486: Defend jobs & contracts – fight bosses’ offensive
This week’s NSSN bulletin highlights a new sinister stage of the Coronavirus pandemic: an increasing number of companies taking advantage of the economic paralysis to announce closures, redundancies and the threat of these to demand reductions of workers’ pay and worsening of terms and conditions. This shows the reality of so-called ‘national unity’ during COVID […]
363: Support Transport Strikes, Picturehouse workers & Mixed Fleet
This week’s bulletin headlines with some key disputes on the trains and buses in the UK and Ireland. Next week, RMT members will be on strike in five rail companies against Driver Only Operation (DOO). For the 3rd time, Southern Rail management have put a divisive offer to train drivers.

NSSN 329: Rail unions unity needed to stop DOO at Southern Rail
The NSSN salutes members of ASLEF who voted to reject Southern Rail’s offer to end their dispute. We call on the union to join with the RMT, who disgracefully were excluded from talks brokered by the TUC, to plan co-ordinated action to stop management’s Driver Only Operation (DOO) plans. The starting point for this […]
NSSN 327: Support RMT on Southern Rail!
The transport union RMT, its members, and many across the union movement are fuming at the proposed Southern Rail ‘deal’. It was made with the leadership of the Aslef transport union and presided over by the TUC – they and the Tories hope it will settle the Southern Rail dispute. We don’t believe that […]
