Open Letter from Bob Crow: Unit to fight the cuts or face destruction
AN OPEN LETTER IN A PERSONAL CAPACITY FROM RMT GENERAL SECRETARY BOB CROW TO THE NATIONAL SHOP STEWARDS NETWORK AND SOCIALIST PARTY
Dear Brothers and Sisters,
I am writing to urge maximum unity in the struggle against the Coalition government’s austerity programme.
Such is the scale of the onslaught against our class that no one should be in any doubt of the need for such unity.
There can be no question of any political party or organisation seeking to assume leadership of this struggle or setting up new national organisations that would create disunity.
Instead all our efforts should be devoted to mobilising all progressive forces and building the biggest and broadest possible movement against the cuts.
I would urge all comrades to take a step back and consider how we can best act in a way which helps achieve these aims.
Yours in unity
RMT General Secretary
