Thank-you and Merry Christmas from the Tram and Bus Division
It’s been a tough year for the Tram and Bus Division.
As usual privatisation of bus services has been top of the agenda. This year we’ve been out on the streets to fight against the privatisation of bus services, talking to the public and representing our members in the ongoing debate
In particular we are concerned about the privatisation of Newcastle public transport services. We’re increasingly hearing more announcements on privatisation of a wide range of transport services and infrastructure, and the government is pushing ahead with a tender for an ‘integrated’ Newcastle transport system.
We want to take this opportunity to thank our members for all the hard work and support, in helping the union fight the good fight. Come 2017 we’re going to have to fight harder than ever. Our division will be there every step of the way to raise these issues to the public, media, bosses, and politicians, and continue to fight hard for the rights of our members.
So from all of us here at the RTBU Tram and Bus Division, we’d like to wish all our hard-working membership for all their huge efforts this year, and wish you and your families a very Merry Christmas, and a safe and happy New Year.
