Black and ethnic minority members

Report: RMT Black and Ethnic Minority Members' Conference

Report by Glenroy Watson. The conference took place on Monday 16th and Tuesday 17th March 2009.

Conference opened without our Chair, elected at last year’s conference and as a result I was elected to Chair this year's conference in direct contradiction of our ‘own’ standing orders. More about that, later.

Conference was again well attended, but could have been better.
