‘Safety Moment’

We raised the issue of sexual harassment, especially on Night Tube. Management responded that the Mayor’s office (Michele Dix and Amy Lame) had drawn up a charter for women’s safety at night.

Join RMT comrades at London LGBT Pride

This year we will be marching in London Pride, one of the world's largest LGBTI events. Not only are Pride marches a time of celebration for our LGBT community, but are an opportunity to promote the union and our campaigns. 

Pride marches are family friendly events and all members, whatever sexuality or gender/gender identity are welcome to join in. 

We encourage branches and regions to take their banners and support our LGBT members.

RMT union celebrating LGBT History Month

Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender (LGBT) history month is an annual event that takes place every February. A range of events are organised around the world to celebrate the lives of activists and acknowledging their role in history, culture and society.

RMT LGBT officer Finsbury Park branch John Stack said that the events play an important role in raising awareness of the prejudice and discrimination that people still face and in helping to break down barriers to equality of opportunity.

Blog: Stonewall To Campaign On Trans Issues

Stonewall has announced today that it will begin campaigning on Trans issues. Stonewall is a charity which works to achieve equality and justice for lesbians, gay men and bisexual people. In 2013 the RMT LGBT conference passed a resolution on Stonewall which included the call that "Stonewall should stop perpetuating the exclusion of transgender people and campaign on trans issues in England and Wales, not just LGB issues."

You can read about Stonewall's decision to begin campaigning on trans issues here.
