RMT backs cost-of-living campaign

Rail Union RMT is among those backing a campaign which is making five demands on issues surrounding the rising cost of living.

The campaign is called Enough is Enough, and today saw the organisation release its first post on Twitter.

General secretary, Mick Lynch, opens the video, saying “People are fed up with the way they’re being treated at work. We need to turn that mood into real organisation on behalf of the working class.

“[…] We can’t be divided; we need everybody campaigning for a better deal.”

The campaign sets out five demands which, in its own words, are:

  1. A real pay Rise
  2. Slash energy bills
  3. End food poverty
  4. Decent homes for all
  5. Tax the rich

The organisation said it will be holding rallies across Britain “in the coming weeks”, as well as forming community groups, “picket line solidarity”, and “taking action against the companies and individuals profiting from this [cost of living] crisis”.

As well as support from RMT, Enough is Enough is backed by the Communication Workers Union (CWU), socialist publication Tribune, mass membership community organisation Acorn, Fans Supporting Foodbanks, the Right to Food Campaign, and Labour MPs Zarah Sultana and Ian Byrne.
