RMT to Consider How We Can Help Tackle Homophobic Bullying in Schools

In response to the resolution from RMT's AGM (submitted by RMT LGBT conference) - which you can read here - the Council of Executives has made the following decision:

That we note the Resolution from the AGM and to prosecute this Resolution, the General Secretary is instructed to:-

1. Contact the charity Diversity Role Models and ask for a presentation from them to a Council of Executives and ask to give a presentation to the LGBT Advisory Committee; their views will be tabled for the Council of Executives to consider.

2. Write to the NUT; NASUWT; UCU; ATL and the EIS for their policies on the subject and when we have collated all this information the Council of Executives will then consider what political campaigns we can run or be part of to oppose cuts in funding to anti-bullying initiatives.

What is a National Executive Committee decision?

This article is an 'executive decision' which has been written by the RMT National Executive Committee. The National Executive is the union's governing body in between AGMs. Its decisions set out what the union will do on a particular issue.

These decisions can often be brief, and may be one of several passed over a period of time. To get a better understanding or find out more information about what the RMT is doing, speak to your rep or attend your branch or Regional Council meeting.
