Freight on Rail is a partnership between the rail trade unions, the rail freight industry and Campaign for Better Transport.
Action for Rail is a campaign involving the TUC, and its affiliated unions with members working on the railways – ASLEF, RMT, TSSA and Unite. Its aim is to work with passenger groups, rail campaigners and environmentalists to campaign against cuts to rail services and staffing and to promote the case for integrated, national rail under public ownership.
The European Parliament will vote soon on a resolution on the controversial TTIP trade agreement between the EU and the US (Transatlantic Trade & Investment Partnership). This is a crucial opportunity for MEPs to hold the European Commission to account and make clear that they must negotiate trade deals in the public interest, not for private profit.
