RMT talks come to an end

1 May 2012

Talks aimed at creating a new transport union in partnership with the RMT have not been able to reach a positive conclusion. After months of discussions it became clear that significant differences remained and that further talks would not be of benefit at this time.

TSSA’s Executive Committee regretted this but noted the positive impact that the closer working relationship between TSSA and RMT had brought in recent years. It was very much hoped this would continue whilst TSSA explored other possibilities for federation or the formation of a new union with other partners.
The way forward from this point will be the focus of a wide ranging strategic debate at TSSA’s Annual Conference later this month. Delegates will be asked to explore options for our union’s future, its finances and subscriptions, structures and campaigning and organising activities.
