RMT CFDU group launches

Submitted by AWL on 6 October, 2020 - 6:21

A group of activists in the National Union of Rail, Maritime, and Transport workers (RMT) has launched a “Campaign for a Fighting, Democratic Union” (CFDU), which “fights for rank-and-file democracy and militant industrial strategies.” The CFDU name has been used by a number of previous similar initiatives in the union. This latest initiative has been launched in response to a burgeoning democratic crisis inside the union, which has seen General Secretary Mick Cash use official union communication channels to attack the lay National Executive Committee, and then refuse to carry out his constitutional obligation to circulate policy passed by that Committee. The CFDU’s statement responding to this can be read on its website. Follow the CFDU on Twitter @RMTCFDU.
