“The anger and bitterness of workers at the Royal Bank of Scotland (RBS) is intense.

We all know that what has happened to bring this bank to its knees has nothing to do with us.

It is 100 percent the responsibility of the bosses.

The new executive team at RBS told us they ‘share our disappointment at the position we are in’. But these same executives are planning job losses and attacks on our pay and conditions.

Bank workers should refuse to pay for this crisis. We need the Unite union to take a lead in organising a fightback. And we need to build a rank and file resistance. The madness has to stop.”
