Circular No: NP/0173/18


Our ref: S3/3/18

5th September 2018

Dear Colleagues

Merchant Navy Training Board

I write to bring to your attention the recent decision of the National Executive Committee on the above matter:

“That we note the minutes on file from the meeting held on the 18th July 2018 and that an event is arranged for the 13th September in Liverpool titled re-thinking the rating.

“We therefore instruct the General Secretary arrange a delegation of Maritime NEC members, maritime members & rating apprentices within the companies where we have recognition to represent RMT at this event.

“We note the short timeline to arrange a delegation however we believe it is imperative that RMT have a good delegation as the Trade Union for Ratings.

“All relevant Branches to be informed.”

I am acting in accordance with this decision and I would be grateful if you could bring the contents of this circular to the attention of members in your branch.

Yours sincerely

Mick Cash
General Secretary
