Circular No. NP/023/16

Dear Colleague,

LGBT History Month

Further to a request from the RMT LGBT Members’ Conference last year, the Council of Executives agreed to promote LGBT History Month (February).  A rainbow logo and new badge have been produced to support this.  LGBT History Month will also be highlighted in an article in the next RMT News. Branch Secretaries are asked to:

•    Encourage members to update their details on the membership system including gender and sexuality
•    Offer the new rainbow badge to any member who wishes to support LGBT history month
•    Nominate LGBT members to attend the National LGBT Members Conference, 13-14 May in Nottingham
•    Nominate LGBT members to go on the two day course in Doncaster 26-27 February to encourage LGBT activism within the union
•    Support having LGBT and/or Equality Representative positions in the Branch
•    Use the logo during February

If you have any queries, or would like badges to be sent to you, please do contact our Equal Opportunities Officer, Jess Webb, on t: 020 7529 8821,

Yours sincerely,

Mick Cash
General Secretary
