NOMINATIONS FOR RMT POLITICAL SCHOOL
SUNDAY 15 MAY – FRIDAY 20 MAY 2016
Please nominate by Tuesday 1 March 2016
The next school will take place from Sunday 15 May to Friday 20 May 2016 (not in March as previously suggested) at the National Education Centre at Doncaster. Participants will be expected to arrive by the early evening of 15 May to meet fellow students at an evening buffet and to ensure a prompt start on the Monday.
With the assistance of guest speakers and our parliamentary group the purpose of the school is for participants to be equipped with a sound understanding of the political role of trade unions, the RMT’s political activity, our international work and how Branches and Regions can effectively support RMT national campaigns and develop local campaigning initiatives.
Branches are invited to nominate one representative but in doing so please ensure that your nominee will definitely be able to attend the school. In the event of applications exceeding places available, the Council of Executives will determine the successful applicants.
Branches are actively encouraged to nominate for the school including, applications from women members. All applications from Branches will be placed before the C of E for consideration.
