Our ref: P/22


26th March 2019


Dear Colleagues


RMT Campaigns at SNP Spring Conference – Edinburgh, 27th April


I write to alert you to the demonstration your union will be holding outside the SNP conference in Edinburgh next month, to highlight our concerns over the Scottish Government’s failed policies in the Transport and Offshore Energy sectors.


The details of the SNP Spring Conference demonstration are:


Saturday 27th April from 09.15-10.15, Edinburgh International Conference Centre, 150 Morrison Street, EH3 8EE


A good turnout from members is imperative as RMT continue to press Scotland’s Government to protect our members’ jobs and to maintain and improve your terms and conditions of service. Banners and flags in support of current RMT campaigns, including Nationalise Northlink, Safer Scottish Trains, Public Ownership of ScotRail, SOS 2020, Fair Funding for Scotland’s Lifeline Ferry Services and End Social Dumping in the Offshore Energy Sector, will be available on the day. For further information, contact Regional Organiser Gordon Martin on 07884 655217 or Gordon.Martin@rmt.org.uk


Attendance at this important event is a legitimate expense from Branch and Regional Council management funds with all reasonable expenses met. In circumstances where the Branch or Regional Council are unable to cover reasonable costs, Head Office will reimburse the individual.


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


Yours sincerely


Mick Cash

General Secretary
