Durban, South Africa – During the 17th Congress of the World Federation of Trade Unions (WFTU) on Oct. 6, Fight Back! spoke with Sean Hoyle, president of the National Union of Rail, Maritime and Transport Workers (RMT) in the U.K.

The RMT, which has more than 80,000 members in many sectors of the transport industry, has long held a position against the European Union, and in the recent referendum they campaigned to leave the E.U. Rather than using the term ‘Brexit’, they used the term ‘Lexit’, meaning they advocated leaving the E.U. for left wing reasons, not the right wing reasons that were raised by some leaders of the Brexit campaign.

Hoyle explains their position in this interview.
