Nominations for Services to Seafarers Welfare award 2022

Circular No. NP/27/22

To all Shipping Branches and Regional Councils

1st February 2022

Dear Colleagues

Nominations for Services to Seafarers Welfare award 2022

I am writing to encourage Branches to submit nominations to the Services to Seafarers’ Welfare award which is made every year by the Merchant Navy Welfare Board (MNWB). RMT is a trustee of the MNWB.

RMT members can nominate seafarers for this award which recognises those who have made a long term contribution, including to the welfare of merchant navy Ratings, either in a voluntary or a professional capacity. The nomination form is available on the MNWB website here:

Nominations can be submitted and the deadline is likely to be in July this year. I will contact you again to confirm the nomination deadline date after the MNWB meeting in March, at which RMT will be represented.

I would be grateful if you could bring the content of this circular to the attention of all members in your Branch and you will be kept updated with further developments.

Yours sincerely

Mick Lynch
General Secretary
