ATCU, an accountable and democratic independent Union founded to address the issues affecting all our colleagues and to meet the aspirations of all those working in the rail industry.
Break the chains of slavery and let your voice be your freedom
As we face one of the biggest economic challenges of our generation it is important that rail unions come together in the protection of the rail community because it is the community which is the primary factor to why we are all here. One way of doing this is to agree to this union’s policy of ‘One union, one voice’, a rail specific union representing everyone who works on or within the railways.
There will be obstacles but they will be of our own making with the primary obstacle to one union being our own determination for change, and it is only the workers who can make it a reality, the very people who are at the forefront of the RAIL INDUSTRY
Who we are?
One of the many attributes of ATCU is that we are flexible enough to change, we are not monolithic.
ATCU is attempting to return to a common respect for one another, among friends and colleagues, to believe that we are a whole and not fragmented, that we are part of a community called the RAIL INDUSTRY
ATCU is a rail specific union who represents everyone associated with the rail industry because you are the rail industry and an integral part of the train crew
