Dear Colleagues

ETF Seafarers Seminar, European Parliament, Brussels 21st October 1500-1830
Further to the circular no. NP/053/15 of 31st March 2015, I can confirm that the ETF Seafarers Seminar will be held in the European Parliament on Wednesday 21st October 2015. The seminar will be entitled ‘Ensuring a Future for EU Seafarers’.
A draft agenda for the seminar was agreed at the annual meeting of the ETF Maritime Transport Section (MTS) in Brussels on 26th June, at which RMT was represented and a copy is attached. The final agenda will be circulated in due course, along with a briefing from your union.

Shipping Branches are invited to send up to two members to attend this seminar and the cost of attendance will be a legitimate form of branch expenditure. It would be appreciated if each branch could send the name(s) of the attending delegate(s) to d.crimes@rmt.org.uk so that we can let ETF know how many are on the RMT delegation. You will need a valid passport in order to attend.

I will keep you informed of further developments and it would be appreciated if you could bring the content of this circular to the attention of all members in your Branch.

Yours sincerely
 
Mick Cash
General Secretary
