Michael Joseph Cash (born 17 February 1960) is general secretary of the National Union of Rail, Maritime and Transport Workers (RMT), a British trade union.
He became a rail worker for British Rail in 1978, looking after railway signals at the southern end of the West Coast Main Line. He was eventually elected assistant general secretary of the RMT, and was subsequently elected general secretary in September 2014, following the death of Bob Crow, beating four other candidates. He declared that he would continue Crow's policies.
He was a member of the Labour Party's National Executive Committee (NEC) until the RMT disassociated itself from the party in 2004, and remains a Labour Party member. In that regard, he is widely considered as less radical than his predecessor, Bob Crow.
