Young Members’ Advisory Committee

The Council of Executives at their meeting of the 20th June 2011 have agreed to increase representation on the RMT Young Members Advisory Committee on the basis of five members per Region. I am therefore seeking nominations from Branches to take up these additional positions.

The term of office for all those elected was three years and they are not due for re election until early 2013. The term of office for the new delegates will also finish in early 2013, unless they reach the age of 30 years prior to that. Along with existing delegates, they too will be eligible for re-election at the completion of their tenure.

I am attaching a nomination form that needs to be completed and signed by the nominating Branch Secretary. The closing date for nominations is the 23rd September 2011.

All those members that are nominated and no ballot is required will be elected. In the event of more than five (or four in regions already represented) members being nominated a ballot will be conducted.

A further circular will be issued at the close of the nomination stage setting out the position.

I sincerely hope that every effort will be made across the Union to maximise the number of those seeking nomination for this key Committee in our Union.

Yours Sincerely

General Secretary Bob Crow
