One day training course - recruitment/retention & organising. May 11 & June 1

One day course on recruitment,retention & organising.

As you know the Senior AGS Steve Hedley has made mapping of local areas a focus of RMT recruitment/retention.
It would be hugely beneficial if local reps are able to take up the opportunity to participate on these courses.
We intend to run courses throughout the year and are hoping all local reps/activists are able to take part.
Paid release from the employer should be requested as we have a statutory right for paid training.
Should they refuse the RMT will cover loss of earnings.
