Dear Colleagues

TRAVEL AND TICKET ARRANGEMENTS: ETF Seafarers Seminar, European Parliament, Brussels 21st October 1500-1830

Further to the circular no. NP/176/15 of 28th September 2015, for those delegates from Shipping Branches attending the ETF Seafarers Seminar in Brussels on Wednesday 21st October, please note the following advice on train travel and tickets.

The Outward and Homeward Eurostar tickets for 21st October should be booked online here: http://www.eurostar.com/uk-en

OUTWARD JOURNEY
The Seminar starts at 1500 and you are strongly advised to book a ticket on the:

1058 London St. Pancras; arriving Brussels Midi/Zuid at 1405

The cost of a Standard Ticket is not fixed so you are advised to book your ticket as soon as possible.

On arrival at Brussels Midi/Zuid, we catch the train (20 minute journey) to Brussels Luxemburg station for the European Parliament.

HOMEWARD JOURNEY
The Seminar finishes at 1830 and you are strongly advised to book a ticket on the last train back to London:

1952 Brussels Midi/Zuid; arriving London St. Pancras at 2103
Again, the cost of a Standard Ticket is not fixed and you are advised to book your ticket as soon as possible.

Shipping Branches can nominate up to two members to attend the ETF 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 by 10th October if they have not already done so. 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 this circular to the attention of all members in your Branch.
 
Yours sincerely

General Secretary
