RMT Develops Strategy Against Homphobia

We note the full Council of Executives has asked us to prepare a 'strategy to eradicate homophobia'. We instruct the General Secretary to prepare this work based on a non exhaustive list of ideas, e.g.

  1. challenging homophobia within the RMT
  2. responding to homophobic instances in the workplace
  3. provide support to members who are coming out as LGBT
  4. ensuring employers have policies that practise full equality
  5. supporting anti homophobic campaigns
  6. RMT to provide new materials for our LGBT members that challenges homophobia in the workplace

Finally that we continue to campaign throughout society to eradicate homophobia.

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.
