Campaigns

Campaigning is ASLEF's core activity. Whether we are pressing for improvements in wages or conditions in a single company, arguing for a change in legislation to benefit our members, seeking justice for the underprivileged in this country or the abused abroad - we are on the campaign trail.

ASLEF is a founder member of Action for Rail a joint union campaign for a better future for Britain’s railways. We are also active in the Freight on Rail campaign which works to promote the economic,social and environmental benefits of rail freight. Other key campaigning initiatives currently include improvements to cab conditions, pensions and travel facilities. We try to make our campaigns innovative and eye-catching, and employ a range of tactics from Parliamentary lobbies and public demonstrations, to organisation of seminars and the production of literature. We believe that a union that ceases to campaign ceases to exist: and that any organisation committed to justice and equality will never have to look far for a cause that deserves our support.
