RMT to Consider Support for 'Hate Crime' Campaign

Resolution from LGBT Advisory Committee:

No to hate crime campaign 17-24-30.org are a non-profit making organisation that have been running vigils in Trafalgar Square in October for the last two years. They are currently going through the process to achieve charitable trust status.

This Advisory Committee notes the importance of a collective stand against all forms of hate crime and the hard work done by 17-24-30.org to date.

This Advisory Committee resolves to publicise the 17-24-30.org and the affiliation form.”

RMT Council of Executives decision:

That we note that it may well have good intentions. As this campaign has only started the Union is not in a position to endorse it. We wish it reviewed by the Council of Executives in March 2012.

What is a National Executive Committee decision?

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.
