RMT Press Office:
RMT AGM agrees to consultation with Branches and Regions on question of Labour Party affiliation.
General Secretary Mick Cash said;
"In light of the changes to the Labour Party under Jeremy Corbyn's leadership RMT's AGM has decided that the time is right to undertake a consultation with our members on the issue of Labour Party affiliation with a report back to a Special General Meeting.
"I should emphasise that no decision has been made, and no decision will be made, until that consultation has been completed and a Special General Meeting has been held in line with RMT's rule book and the unions policies and principles as a member-led organisation. "
