RMT Young Members' Advisory Committee to Expand

RMT Council of Executives decision:

We note the report [from the Organisation, Training and Education Sub-Committee]. However, we believe that our young members should not be treated differently from our other groups which have Advisory Committees, and therefore agree that the Young Members' Advisory Committee should consist of five seats per region.

We encourage all groups which have Advisory Committees to set up regional committee, to improve organisation, encourage member participation, and delegate their Representatives to the national Advisory Committees.

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.
