Circular No. NP/27/22
To all Shipping Branches and Regional Councils
1st February 2022
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: https://www.mnwb.org/nominate-award
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.
