Fight Back News Service is circulating the following Aug. 9 statement from the World Federation of Trade unions in solidarity with the National Union of Rail, Maritime and Transport Workers (RMT). The RMT is one of Britain’s largest progressive trade unions and it backed the struggle for Britain to leave the European Union.

The World Federation of Trade Unions salutes the transport workers in the London Underground in their struggle for the satisfaction of their fair demands and congratulates its affiliate, the RMT Britain, for organizing a 5 day strike in Southern Rail.

The Railway Workers in Southern Rail are struggling to protect their jobs and the security of the workers and passengers. We call all WFTU affiliates and friends to support their hard struggle by any means possible.

WFTU stands on the side of the railway workers and RMT and their struggle for job security and better wages. WFTU calls on all trade unions to take initiatives of solidarity with RMT and send messages of support to the railway workers.
