"The National Union of Rail, Maritime and Transport Workers (RMT) is a
British trade union for transport workers, affiliate of the World Federation of
Trade Unions and the European Transport Federation. It was formed by a merger of
the National Union of Railwaymen (NUR) and the National Union of Seamen (NUS).
Predecessors of the RMT were among the unions which set up the Labour
Representation Committee in 1900. It has more than 80,000 members from almost
every sector of the transport industry - from the mainline and underground
shipping and offshore, buses and road freight."
