ALL BRANCHES & REGIONAL COUNCILS
Nominations for RMT Black and Ethnic Minority Members’ Course,
7-8 October 2016
I write to inform you of this year’s black and ethnic minority (B&EM) member’s empowerment course. The purpose of the course is to help B&EM members understand how the union works, including history, structure, writing and presenting resolutions etc to overcome the barriers which can discourage them from becoming active.
The course will take place from Friday 7 October to Saturday 8 October 2016 at our National Education Centre in Doncaster. The course will commence with a lunch at 1pm on Friday and will conclude by 4pm Saturday, so it only requires only 1 night away.
Branches are invited to nominate one representative but in doing so please ensure that your nominee will definitely be able to attend the school if allocated a place. The application form can be sent directly to the Education Centre and the costs of this course will be met by Head Office. The form must be received by Friday 9 September 2016.
All B&EM members are encouraged to take this course once and then move up to representative/officer level courses. Any queries, please do contact our Equal Opportunities Officer, Jess Webb, firstname.lastname@example.org
