Circular No: NP/0173/18
TO ALL SHIPPING BRANCHES & REGIONAL COUNCILS.
Our ref: S3/3/18
5th September 2018
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.
