Socialist MP Jeremy Corbyn has made it onto the ballot for the Labour leadership election.
Jeremy is a member of the RMT’s Parliamentary Group, and has been a consistent supporter of rail workers’ struggles.
All rail unions must throw their weight behind his campaign, as the only consistently pro-union and pro-rail-renationalisation candidate in the election. Our representatives on Labour Party committees must back Corbyn’s campaign.
His candidacy is an excellent opportunity to discuss how to refound genuine working-class political representation in a context in which the Labour Party is hurtling to the right.
Off The Rails supporters have helped set up a“Rail and transport workers 4 Corbyn” network to coordinate activity in rail unions and our workplaces.
All the other Labour leadership candidates want to reinforce the austerity consensus: only Corbyn wants to put socialism back on the agenda.
