DLR Recruitment Day Success

On Thursday 31 July, RMT’s Docklands Light Railway (DLR) branch held a recruitment day. Les Sime (branch chair) reports ...

First of all, we would like to thank the members of the regional council for attending our first ever recruitment day - Bros Hedley, O’Dowd, Hodgson, Rayfield and Pottage, and Sisters Siddall and Booth.

I have been chair for the last year, and in that time, we have managed to raise the profile of the RMT in our workplace, and this is now paying dividends in all aspects of our branch. Our aim now is to become regular attendees at the regional council meeting, and to help promote the RMT branches at their recruitment days and activities.

Our recruitment day was a great success, and we managed to enrol another 45 new members into the union by targeting the areas where membership was quite low. 92% of the entire workplace is now in the RMT.

Once again many thanks to everyone who attended, and the information we gathered that day will prove invaluable in the future.
