Notes from Branch Membership Secretaries Training Day

London Transport Region held a training day for branch membership secretaries on 26 July. Thanks to everyone who came along and took part. The day seemed to go very well, and I hope everyone got something out of it.

As well as training the membership secretaries, we managed to also generate quite a few ideas and plans, as follows:

Regional Council to:

  • repeat the training for those branch membership secretaries who were unable to attend (I'll email them to work out an appropriate date)

RMT membership density - figures and trends

The Regional Council (with the very great help of the Stations & Revenue Grades Committee Secretary!) has been compiling statistical information on membership levels on station groups and traincrew depots. We calculated the density (percentage of RMT members at each location) for stations and trains, and will soon carry out the same exercise for other grades.

Training: Auditing and Increasing RMT Membership in Your Area

Venue: Exmouth Arms, Star Cross Street, near Euston

This workshop is a must for all workplace RMT representatives, and for branch officers. We are more effective at everything we do if we sign up as many members as possible and keep our membership information up-to-date. this is especially true since recent legal rulings have placed even greater demands on unions when it comes to information.

This training workshop will look at:

  • identifying who is and is not a member in your workplace
  • persuading non-members to join
  • keeping membership details up-to-date
