30th June 2016

Dear Colleagues

The Seafarer e-magazine

I am pleased to include a link to the first edition of The Seafarer, an e-magazine produced by RMT, dedicated to the union’s campaigns and activities in the maritime industry. This is in line with the decision taken at the union’s 2015 AGM in Bristol.

The opening edition contains useful and interesting coverage of the current position of UK ratings in the industry, including within specific companies where RMT has recognition.

I urge all RMT seafarers to read and share The Seafarer in the mess room and with colleagues on shore, including through social media. Your ideas on future features and coverage are also welcome, particularly as the union is stepping up its campaigning in the shipping industry over the months and years ahead. Please submit any ideas for features and coverage of the maritime industry to this email address:

I would be grateful if you could bring the content of this circular to the attention of all branch members. You will be kept updated with further developments in the union’s maritime campaigning and alerted to future editions of The Seafarer.

Yours sincerely
Mick Cash
General Secretary
