Resolution: Training for Representatives

This resolution, submitted by Hammersmith & City line branch, proposed by Stratford no.1 branch and seconded by Neasden branch, was carried unanimously by the May meeting of the Regional Council ...

This Regional Council believes that RMT workplace representatives would benefit from an annual ‘refresher’ training day, and asks head office to request release for this from all employers.

This Regional Council also believes that whenever a new policy or procedure (eg. grievance, discipline, attendance, equality, etc) comes into force, representatives should receive adequate training in the new procedure and how it affects their role. We believe that the union should ensure that employers agree release for such training before agreeing to any new policy.
